You can help victims of Isaac! - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

You can help victims of Isaac!

Good morning everyone!

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

The tales of devastation continue to unfold in the wake of Isaac. Many people have lost their homes to flooding and that number continues to grow. Those of us here can relate to losing so much to a storm, and because of that we at KPLC are joining forces with the City of Sulphur and retired NFL New Orleans Saints cornerback Mike McKenzie and his 34 Ways Foundation.  We'll explain how you can help secure supplies for those parishes affected by Hurricane Isaac.

Meanwhile, what's left of Isaac continues north, and as it moved this morning the tropical moisture associated with it prompted showers and storms across our area. However, Ben tells me we'll have some sunny breaks from the rain, with the chance of rain winding down with the loss of daytime heating. What about our weekend? Ben says things are looking up, and he'll have the complete Labor Day weekend forecast at noon. In the meantime, you can go HERE for weather information 24/7.

Plus a look at how parents can cope with their child's allergies as they go back to school.  It's some important information that could help save lives.

Remember, you can watch us at noon online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and we wish you a safe and happy Labor Day holiday!
