FBI says improvised pressure cookers used in Boston explosions

Happy Wednesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at today's top stories on Sunrise:

*This morning, we are learning more about the explosives used in the deadly terror attack in Boston.  The FBI has the first pictures of the devices used in the attack: improvised pressure cookers packed with metal shrapnel.

*Parents may be asked by children why the Boston Marathon bombings happened and parents may not know how to answer.  Hear from a Louisiana psychologist about how to talk to children about tragedy.

*Louisiana is known to be an "it" place for filming movies.  Places like Shreveport, New Orleans and Baton Rouge top the list.  Find out what's being done to bring more movie productions to Southwest Louisiana.

*There are several new flicks out on DVD and Blu-Ray this week, including "Django Unchained."  We'll have the video view.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry says weather changes are on the way.  Find out about the threat for potentially strong storms tomorrow.
