Good morning!

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

If you fly out of Lake Charles Regional Airport you need to know that the number of passengers allowed on board is being limited. It has to do with decreasing the weight on board. We'll tell you why at noon.

Also today, three years after the Gulf oil spill, a group of kids is trying to make a difference for animals injured in the incident. Hear why they wanted to get involved, and why they're asking for your help.

Plus, a Georgia woman is making it easier for other ladies to protect themselves out on the street. She has a line of handbags made with special compartments to hold guns. 

Pretty cool temperature-wise this today. It's mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 40s with our ultimate high today around 60. What can we expect tonight? How about the weekend?   Look for all the answers in Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Maybe that weekend forecast will make you feel like dancing…even in your sleep like one little kitten can be seen doing! We'll get a peek at the bedtime antics at noon.

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