Anyone missing a forklift?

Good morning!

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

Imagine driving along I-10 near the Opelousas Street exit in Lake Charles and encountering a forklift smack-dab in the middle of the lane! It happened this morning and it took authorities a while to get the heavy equipment out of the way.

Trail rides are big business in Louisiana, and there's a big one underway from Iowa to Lake Charles today. Look for scenes from the ride at noon.

Also today, we've heard it for decades – no pain, no gain. But what if you could get into shape without even sweating? Sounds way too good to be true, but we'll show you what's being billed as the "no-work workout."

Plus, paying at the pump could put your information in the hands of criminals. We'll show you how people are falling victim to a scam.

And surprise, surprise, surprise – Gomer gets married! Many of you may remember Gomer's "surprises" from  the classic comedy "Gomer Pyle, USMC." We'll have more on that.

Ben tells me the cold front has moved through our area and the rain is over. However, very windy conditions are expected with a Wind Advisory in effect for all of southwest Louisiana thru 6 p.m. tonight. It's supposed to get cold tonight, but how cold? You can get the answer to that and more during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

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