Good morning!

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

We'll have more in the aftermath of Monday's bombing at the Boston Marathon. Two bombs blew up seconds apart at the finish line of the event – killing three, and wounding more than 170 others. Doctors are now describing wounds likely caused by ball bearings or BB's. We'll have the latest on the investigation that's being headed by the FBI. Several runners were from the lake area and all are said to be okay. You can read more about it HERE.

Also today, Governor Jindal has announced a capital construction proposal for the next fiscal year which includes millions for projects in Southwest Louisiana. It's a long list that you can check out HERE.

A cat in Indiana has one less life after being thrown from a highway overpass! We'll tell you about his unique survival story.

Plus, are you tougher than a Boy Scout? Some military men and some first responders all thought they were – that is until they got schooled by some Texas Boy Scouts. 

Another misty, humid day. In fact, Ben tells me we'll be at near 100 percent humidity today with highs into the mid 70's. He says more clouds will come in tonight. What will that mean for our rest-of-the-week conditions? Tune in at noon for his live, local forecast.

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