LC Port to operate at deficit for two years, promising growth

Good Wednesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what we have in store on today's Sunrise:

*The Port of Lake Charles expects to operate at a loss for at least the next two years, but officials there say that will be offset by some big projects.  We will take a look at what those are and how many jobs they will create.

*There is a different type of medicine helping to heal local patients. It is one you might not expect to see within the walls of a hospital.  I will introduce you to a local hospital's pastoral care team that says their life calling is to minister to the sick and hurting in the hospital.

*A public meeting is scheduled for today in Westlake to discuss changes coming to the saltwater barrier on the Calcasieu River.  Hear why the Army Corps of Engineers will be changing some of its service hours.

*Listen up commuters!  There will be a lane closure on I-10 later this morning near Sulphur. The inside lane of I-10 eastbound between Beglis Parkway and the I-210 junction will be closed from 8:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. 

*Topping national news: find out where the investigation goes this morning related to a deadly shooting at a mall in Portland, Oregon.

*Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will have a look at a warming trend in store later this week - and an early preview of your Christmas forecast!

Make it a Sunrise day!
