RALEIGH, N.C. -

The icy weather is keeping a group of North Carolina attractions closed for another day.

The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources says the N.C. Aquariums at Fort Fisher, Pine Knoll Shores and Roanoke Island are closed on Thursday because of ice and snow. Jennette's Pier in Nags Head is closed as well.

In addition, the N.C. Zoo in Asheboro will be closed on Thursday.

Agency spokesman Jamie Kritzer said a decision on whether to open the facilities will be made on Thursday afternoon.

The public can learn about the zoo's daily operating status by calling the park's toll-free number at 1-800-488-0444 or by visiting the website at www.nczoo.org.
