Dense fog is obscuring views of nearby buildings in Greater Victoria Tuesday morning, making for spooking scenes all around town.

Environment Canada issued a fog advisory for the region Tuesday morning, saying visibility could suddenly be reduced to near-zero.

The weather agency says a fog advisory is in effect for Greater Victoria and eastern Vancouver Island — Courtenay to Campbell River, Duncan to Nanaimo, Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay.

“Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. If travelling, be prepared for areas of near-zero visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance,” the weather agency said in a statement posted on its website.

The dense fog is expected to stick around for the morning all morning before dissipating in the afternoon.
