Meth cooking, farm style - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Meth cooking, farm style

Good morning!

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

Never know where you'll find a meth lab these days, but CPSO reports finding one in a Moss Bluff barn. We'll tell you where they found it, and who they've arrested in the case. 

Also today, we'll take you to a class aimed at improving driver safety here in the lake area.

We'll  also explain something called "pumping parties." Women are paying to have potentially deadly substances injected into their bodies for better curves. We'll hear what doctors are now seeing in the emergency room.

Plus, are you hoping to give your home a new and improved look? Well we'll show you how a simple closet makeover could save you big money – and a shopping trip.

It's looks as though we should have a pretty nice day now that the rain is gone. Ben tells me we should have some afternoon sunshine with highs into the lower 70's. But what about tomorrow and then our weekend? I'm hearing Sunday and Monday could be pretty rocky.   Look for all the details in Ben's live, local forecast at noon. And while we're talking about the weather, the  7 Stormteam will be at the Walgreens located at the corner of Ryan and 18th Streets TODAY from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to program NOAA Weather radios. So, if you need to pick up a radio, program one you have, or just want to meet the team, go on over there tonight.

One other note, if you've missed KPLC's Gerron Jordan's powerful stories on the homeless in our area you can watch them HERE, and he will conclude his special reports tonight at 10 p.m.

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

    Overnight showers and thunderstorms will come through tonight. We will see windy conditions with these storms. The rain will start as early as the early evening hours and will last into Saturday morning. No severe weather is expected tonight, but there is a chance for heavy rainfall in some areas. Temperatures will cool down to the upper 60s tonight, thanks to the rain and cloud cover keeping the warmer temperatures near the surface.
