Motorists asked to avoid Sulphur intersection following water main break

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

As investigators continued their work today in Boston, many in the city paused to remember the victims and reflect on what has been an overwhelming week in their city. We have two separate reports tonight on the investigation and road to recovery.

Plus, a Leesville woman dies in an overnight crash and authorities have reason to believe alcohol played a factor in the crash. We'll have details from State Police.

And no one was home when a Moss Bluff house went up in flames… we're there as fire fighters battle the fire.

Also a major water main break in Sulphur has city officials urging motorists to avoid the intersection of Napolean and Huntington Streets for the next 48 hours.

7 Sports Seth Lewis has had a busy weekend. Tonight he shows us Senior Day at the McNeese Women's Softball game… plus a wrap up of the weekend's events.

And the weather finally warmed up today, but when can we expect the cooler weather to leave for good? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your forecast.

We'll see you tonight at ten for these stories and much more. Until then we are always on at kplctv.com.
