Lake Arthur schools closed Monday; Curfew still in effect

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

Lake Arthur is still watching the water rise. Parts of the levee system there breached overnight causing flooding in some parts of the town. Tonight, they are still under a mandatory curfew. KPLC's Gerron Jordan rode along with officials there as they surveyed the damage. We'll also have the latest school closures.

The cooler weather has arrived. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes tells us about that and how much rain we can expect coming up this week.

Southwest Louisiana crowned this year's Mardi Gras Royalty this weekend. See the young ladies who will represent you in 2013.

Also an interesting story out of Florida where hunters from across the country are hunting pythons for prize money. We'll tell you why they're doing it and the dangers involved.

We'll see you tonight at ten following the Golden Globe Awards. Until then we're always on kplctv.com.
