SWLA residents aboard cruise ship headed home

Good Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The Carnival Triumph docked late last night, days after a fire crippled its Caribbean vacation.  There were several Southwest Louisiana residents who dealt with the horrible conditions on the ship.  We'll have live reports from Gerron Jordan in Mobile, Alabama this morning.

*It will be a close encounter for earth as an asteroid passes by today.  We will tell you how close it will actually be and what NASA is saying about its location.

*How would you like to eat like a cave man?  It's a lifestyle that is growing in parts of the country.  It's called a paleo diet.  In this morning's Healthcast, we'll look at the results some people are having because of it.

*More developments today on the murder case involving Olympic star, Oscar Pistorius.  Authorities now say there were previous incidents of a domestic nature at the home.

*It's a chilly morning, but Meteorologist Ben Terry says we'll see lots of sunshine today.  He'll have the forecast through the weekend.

Make it a Sunrise day!
