Good morning on this Memorial Day everyone! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.
We are remembering those who gave all in service to our country. Memorial Day observances are being held and many flags are being flown to remember those who sacrificed their very lives for our freedom. We'll take you to one of those local events live. In the meantime, you can check out times and locations of local Memorial Day events HERE.
As we remember what has been done to preserve our freedom, let's not forget what we can each do on a daily basis when it comes to our civic duties. We're going to have an inspiring story out of Allen Parish. A high profile murder trial just wrapped up there and on the jury – a 94 year old woman. What compels someone like her to get out there and do her duty? And why should her convictions mean so much to you? Hear what she has to say at noon.
Also today, naval divers are investigating a long submerged secret. They're looking into what could be a World War II aircraft buried in the ocean off the coast of Florida.
Plus, can a robot save a life better than a human? One beach is giving the idea a shot and people there say the robot lifeguard can reach swimmers in danger faster than regular lifeguards. We'll take a look at how they work.
Lots of you have all sorts of activities planned for this holiday and may be worrying about how high those temperatures will go. Well, Ben is on the job and says you can expect highs in the lower 90's by this afternoon. But what about the work week? And are any rain chances coming into the picture? Ben will reveal all the answers in his full, local, up-to-the-minute forecast at noon. He'll also update the latest on Tropical Storm Beryl near Florida. Right now, you can go HERE to see the latest track.
Remember, you can always watch us live online at kplctv.com and on air at noon each weekday.
