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.

We'll have more in the aftermath of Isaac as some communities are still dealing with power outages and clean up operations. We'll tell you how you can still help those in need. Right now, you can check out the specifics of our local relief efforts HERE. While you're online, you may be interested in this story  -why does the Social Security Administration need 174 thousand bullets? The answer can be found HERE.

Also today, a look at a class reunion in an Acadiana community that garnered national attention. It all has to do with a party that excluded a segment of the graduates.

Plus, a heartwarming story of an infant that survived a bout with the West Nile virus.

In weather, Ben tells me the hot and dry weather continues today with high humidity resulting in heat index values in the 100 to 103 degree range later today. However, by Saturday he's talking about a cold front…yes a cold front! What will that mean for our rain chances? Look for his full, live, local forecast at noon.

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

    Concerns raised about possible revisions to Calcasieu sewerage ordinance

    Friday, July 21 2017 9:26 PM EDT2017-07-22 01:26:44 GMT

    Local business people are raising a red flag on proposed changes in Calcasieu Parish's sewerage ordinance. Some predict a huge cost increase at multiple levels for developers, realtors and consumers. However, parish officials say those who have read proposed revisions have only seen them because they were seeking input from various segments of the community.
