Good morning everyone! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.
We're going to take a look at dangers lurking around something you may use every day. It seems almost everyone these days has a smart phone, and with all that personal info at your fingertips, hacking is a major concern. We'll show you just how easy it is for hackers to access your phone's voicemail.
Plus, how much thought have you given to the idea of coastal terrorism? Hopefully, you'll never have to witness such an event. We'll explain how law enforcement and federal agents are teaming up to fight against crime on the ocean – and how they target threats.
Chances are you experienced an isolated shower this morning, well, look for more of the same throughout the day. It won't be as much as yesterday, and by tomorrow Ben tells me rain looks unlikely. He's working on that local forecast right now and he'll have all the details for you in just a bit. He's also checking out tropical forecast models for the Gulf of Mexico – apparently there's some potential for a trough of low pressure to enter the Gulf – but then what? While you're waiting for his full forecast at noon, you can always check out radars and more HERE.
If you are on our website looking perhaps at weather, you may want to check out an incredible story about how firefighters are sending out wonderful messages for a little boy suffering from terminal cancer. His name is Dyrk, and in some places that name is literally on fire. Check it out HERE.
We'll see you at noon – remember we're on live on kplctv.com and on air.
