Mandatory curfew for Lake Arthur residents; More rain on the way

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for 7 News at Six.

As the water on the Mermentau River show no signs of receding a mandatory curfew has been put in place for Lake Arthur residents. KPLC's Olivia Vidal shows you more of the flooded areas and talks with concerned residents.

Olivia is followed by Meteorologist Cedric Haynes. His forecast is not what residents in Lake Arthur and surrounding areas want to hear. More rain is on the way overnight and into tomorrow. Plus, he'll also tell you about some cooler weather headed to SWLA.

Also more tonight on the ambitious new tax proposal from Governor Bobby Jindal and the battle it's brewing at the state capitol.

And if you're looking to make your house a home… there's a one stop shop this weekend at the Civic Center. We head over to the 22nd annual Home Show to see what they have to offer.  

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