Good morning!

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

We'll tell you how you can listen in as Lake Charles Police hold a press conference today on a case of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape of two local women back in 1992.

If you drive in Sulphur, we'll tell you why you still need to avoid a portion of Huntington Street.  It all has to do with a water main break and the damage it did to the roadway.

Also today, some students get a day off school to give back to their community. We'll show you how they're helping to build a house for a family in need. It's all part of one city's initiative to boost volunteerism.

Plus, see how a new website is helping doctors compare notes on their patients – helping fewer people fall through the cracks in the healthcare system.

In weather, Ben says the humidity and temperatures will slowing climb today – topping out in the upper 70's later this afternoon. He then says the clouds will increase on Tuesday, and a chance of rain coming in on Wednesday. You can get all the details on our work-week conditions during Ben's live, local forecast at noon, and you can always access weather HERE.

An if you're on our website, you may want to check out THIS story. Imagine if you were at an airport ready to board a shuttle van and you saw this slither across your path!!!

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