Wednesday Afternoon Headlines - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Wednesday Afternoon Headlines

Good Afternoon!

A big water main break is causing big problems on I-210 between Legion and Broad.

And we'll give you highlights on the abortion debate that is going on at the state capitol.

For Patriot of the Week, we remember a local police officer who made a big difference in the Lake Area and Washington D.C.

We saw some showers around during the afternoon hours on Wednesday; but once the sun sets these should come to an end. Tonight we will have lows in the mid 60s under a partly cloudy sky. High pressure will setup over our area for the rest of the week and that will make it very difficult to get any rain plus the sinking air will warm our temperatures.

On 7 News at Six Sports, Joe will have the Sports Person of the Week featuring the Barbe Baseball State Championship Team.

Those stories and more today on 7 News Live at Five and 7 News at Six.
