MANCHESTER (KWWL) -

Dense fog forced an eastern Iowa school to cancel classes Tuesday.

The West Delaware School District initially delayed school for two hours, but then decided to close for the day.

"We were hoping it would burn off, but it didn't do so in time. In the rural areas in our district, it is not clear enough to make it safe to stop a bus on the road. Fog is a tough call because it can be clear in some areas and dense in others. We start out by 8:30 a.m. on a two-hour delay, so we couldn't wait any longer," said Dr. Kristen Rickey, West Delaware superintendent.
