Multi-billion dollar LNG project closer to reality in SWLA

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

*New information for you from overnight about a deadly crash on I-10 in Lake Charles.  Troop D State Police says around 8:30 P.M. near the Cameron-Creole exit, a vehicle sideswiped another and a Welsh lady was ejected.

*Investigators in California are trying to get more answers this morning after a female intern was killed by a lion at a private wild animal park.

*There's a new method to keep Westlake High students, parents and the surrounding community up-to-date about school events.  It's called "Remind 101."  We'll explain how the alert program works.

*There's a Louisiana lottery powerball ticket worth $10,000 that hasn't been claimed.  It was bought in Carencro.  We'll share those numbers with you today.

*An Australian-based liquefied natural gas company is one step closer to making a new home in Lake Charles. 

*More reaction to the American flag being at half staff at the Lake Charles Citgo refinery, honoring the memory of former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Make it a Sunrise day!
