Good morning, everyone!

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

We're monitoring a situation near Shreveport.  It involves an explosion at an underground bunker at Camp Minden, a U.S. Army facility that stores munitions in Webster Parish. In the meantime, you can read more about it HERE.

Could Brandon Scott Lavergne be tied to another missing woman? A search of Lavergne's home in the investigation into Mickey Shunick's death has uncovered the driver's license of a Texas woman whose whereabouts remain unknown. Lavergne is serving a life sentence after pleading guilty in August to two counts of first degree murder in the killings of UL student Shunick and Lisa Pate.

Also today, chances are you've used an internet search engine at least once this week. Sometimes those searches can have unflattering results for presidential candidates. We'll show you some of the major goof-ups.

Plus, coupon clipping is making a resurgence – just minus the clipping. We'll take a look at how you can get the best deals and steals on your phone and how this can make checking out at stores quicker than ever.

In weather, Ben tells me we can expect more clouds as we go thru the day which should keep the temperatures in the low 80's. What are our chances of rain? And how cold can we expect it to be over the next few days? Ben's working on those numbers right now, so be sure to tune in to his live, local forecast at noon.

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