A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7am on Saturday for Beaufort, Mainland Hyde, Martin, Outer Banks Dare, Tyrrell, Washington and western Dare County. The threats are black ice and slick roadways.
The search continues for a Lenoir County grandmother and her 15-year-old granddaughter. Authorities say with over 300 leads, rescue workers continue to search every body of water in the area in which 58-year-old Gail Haddock-Dail's cell phone signal originated.
Authorities say rescue workers are dragging waterways, using sonar, and if they determine the lead is strong enough, they send down divers. Officials say they exhausted their search Wednesday of a nearby pond after searching by boat and dragging the bottom three different times.
Commander Greg Thompson also says cost and manpower are not a factor, that they'll use every possible resource in a search like this.
