Don't miss 7 News at Noon!

Good morning everyone!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

The relentless rain continues to be news today. Ben says to expect an additional one to two inches at least today and the National Weather Service has extended a Flash Flood Watch through this evening. The good news -  temperatures won't climb that much. You'll probably see highs in the 70's and 80's, but what about tomorrow and the rest of the weekend? Is there any break in sight? Ben is preparing his extended forecast, so be sure to tune in at noon for his live, local information. In the meantime, you can view the latest radar HERE.

While we may be experiencing a tremendous amount of rain, for much of the rest of the country, it's dry and hot. Those conditions translate to possible higher prices at the grocery store. We'll explain.

A 35-year-old Lake Charles man has been arrested on child porn charges. The Operation Child Watch investigation initiated by State Police revealed more than 40 movies containing child sexual abuse. We'll tell you more about the case at noon.

If you watched our newscasts last night, you saw the report about a homicide at the high rise apartment building on Mill Street in Lake Charles. So far, the name of the victim has not been released, but we expect more information at a press conference at the Lake Charles Police Department. 

New districts will be in place for future city elections in Sulphur. We'll explain what voters and those planning to run for office will need to know.

Plus, if you're excited about the Olympics, you're not alone. Athletes are excited, but training does take a toll – especially on their wallets. While they should be focusing on representing the USA, they're worried about paying their bills.

We'll have these and other stories at noon. We hope you join us.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend everyone! Be careful in the rain!
