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.
Finishing touches are being made on the new Beaufort County Animal Shelter.
Nearly six months of construction and close to $1,000,000 later, the shelter is set to open up in just a few weeks. The new facility will be able to house 20 dogs and 16 cats. The shelter is named after Betsy Bailey who left money for the building in her will.
