Good morning everyone!

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

Lake Charles Police arrested a 33 year old man after they said he barricaded himself inside a home on McNabb Street, and held two young children hostage. The ordeal lasted nearly three and a half hours before the children were allowed to leave, and the suspect was taken into custody. We'll tell you what police say sparked the incident.

Also today, a wrong label results in a famous work of art being hidden away for decades. Now a small museum is facing a big question – how to deal with this incredible discovery.

Plus, credit or debit? It's a question many parents must ask themselves when they're sending their kids off to college. Should you give your child a credit card, or should you consider something without a serious risk? We'll have some expert answers.

Speaking of money, are you owed any state income tax refunds? If you are, you could be losing out if you don't claim it by the end of the week. Read more about the issue HERE.

In weather, we're enjoying lower humidity with a few areas seeing temperatures in the upper 60's. Ben says some afternoon clouds will come in, but he's not expecting any rain… at least not today. However, he says those rain chances should increase later in the week. He's also tracking the tropics and the possibility of a hurricane forming by Thursday. Right now you can look at what's happening out there HERE, and be sure to tune in at noon for Ben's full, local and live forecast.

Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com or on air. We hope you join us and have a great day everyone!
