More big money projects heading to the area

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

*There are big projects heading to Calcasieu Parish, especially dealing with the Port of Lake Charles.  The Cameron Liquefied Natural Gas Facility in Hackberry wants to expand.  We'll have details on the project that could bring about 3,000 construction jobs and 1,200 full-time jobs to the area.

*A deal on Mardi Gras Boardwalk could be made at tonight's Lake Charles City Council meeting.  We'll preview the vote on selling the old Harrah's property for more than $4 million.

*This morning, we have the latest details on a gas explosion and massive fire at a Kansas City restaurant that hurt more than a dozen people.

*The most decorated star in Tiger football history is under the care of doctors this morning.  LSU legend Billy Cannon suffered a stroke.  Find out where his care goes from here.

*We'll have the latest information on the arrest of a Lake Charles man charged in connection to his ex-wife's murder last summer.

*Rain is creeping back into the forecast.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have the forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
