Join us for 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 big news deals with Isaac. Hurricane warnings continue from Morgan City, LA to Destin, FL. While Ben is working on the numbers for our show, the National Weather Service continues to track the storm and update local Emergency Preparedness officials. There was a briefing for the Calcasieu OEP this morning, we have been broadcasting that, along with one from the Governor this morning. At noon, we'll have the important points from both of those briefings, along with the latest coordinates from Ben. You can always get the latest info on the storm itself HERE, and to make sure you're prepared should any storm come our way, and to make sure you're prepared should any storm come our way, you can go HERE for some planning tips. You can also learn how to sign up for free alerts from the CalcaShout program HERE.

In other local news, we'll tell you about the arraignment for a former local priest on sex charges, and how Sulphur Police are looking for someone who took flags from Heritage Square in Sulphur.

Also today, while we may not be seeing the effects of a drought on our farms here in southwest Louisiana, that doesn't mean we won't soon feel the pinch in our pockets. That drought elsewhere will bump up prices, so you can expect groceries to get more expensive.

Plus, for some a new school year means it's time to clean out the closet, and go shopping for a new look. However, with so many choices, what should you buy to stay on top of current trends?

Look for those stories and, of course, the latest information about Isaac at noon.

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