Good Thursday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:
*Reports say an explosion at a fertilizer plant in the town of West, Texas (near Waco), killed several people and hurt dozens. We have video of the fire and will share the information from investigators this morning.
*Bomb teams working the Boston investigation say there are "solid leads" about who might be responsible for the deadly attacks earlier this week. There is apparently now security video capturing images of a man leaving a bag near the second blast site.
*Abortion is a hot topic at the State Capitol again and those against it scored a big victory in a senate committee. A bill aimed at banning doctors from administering the abortion pill via telemedicine is now headed to the full senate for debate.
*From walking to bending, grabbing and standing - we don't typically give much thought about our joint health until there's a problem. That problem is arthritis for millions of Americans and is the leading cause of disability. I'll tell you about a new procedure to help you avoid joint replacement.
*Meteorologist Ben Terry will tell you us about the changing forecast today, starting with strong winds.
Make it a Sunrise day!
