Severe weather to move through Christmas morning - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Severe weather to move through Christmas morning

Good Evening,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for this Christmas Eve edition of 7 News Nightcast.

It may be a holiday, but the news never stops. We've seen a homicide unfold and a fire an area chemical fire.

But the big story we are watching tonight into Christmas morning is the band of severe weather moving through our area with the potential to produce tornadoes. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will have an update on what we can expect.

We'll also have more on the homicide investigation in Ragley. The Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help after a man was found shot to death in his front yard off Highway 171. We'll have the latest.

Plus, a fire at PPG sends one worker to the hospital but officials say there was no offsite impact.

Also after all the gift-giving - retailers are set for another mad rush. We talk with area Lake Area law enforcement officials about their role in holiday safety at area shopping centers.    

And despite being eliminated from the playoffs the New Orleans Saints look to finish the season on a winning note. KPLC's Sam Gannon is on the sports desk with all the details.

We'll see you tonight at ten for all of these stories and more. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
