Good morning everyone!
Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.
A 15-year-old Duson girl remains missing. Keiosha Felix was last seen on April 30 and was initially thought to be a runaway. Then came word that different members of the family were giving different stories about being in contact with her, and now three people have been arrested – two of them family members. We'll try to sort it all out at noon.
Also today, it is a true trash-to-treasures story – an artist buys large canvases at Goodwill so she can paint cats on them, but there's a catch. She didn't know those canvases were original paintings worth thousands of dollars.
Plus, if you can stand the thought of germs, have we got a story for you. We're going to shine a light on something you may think would be safe from some of the worst germs. In fact, it's really one of the most germ-infested things you touch on a daily basis – and no, it's NOT your toilet.
Weather-wise, we're off to a very warm and muggy start with some scattered showers and storms developing across our area. You can thank a very warm, muggy night for the increased rain probability. Ben tells me with heat index values we can expect to feel as if the temperature was between 100 to 105 degrees this afternoon. What's in store for tomorrow and the weekend? Well, be sure to tune in to Ben's complete, live, local forecast at noon. You can always get the latest radar view HERE.
