Officials: tornado victims recovered, death toll lowered

Good Wednesday morning to you! Here's a look at today's top stories:

*There's a severe weather threat in parts of Southwest Louisiana this morning as storms in Texas shift to our neck of the woods. Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking that system.

*Officials in Moore, Oklahoma have lowered the death toll from 91 to 24. The chaos after the tornado led to a lot of confusion, but the severity of ...the storm is getting much clearer today.

*A family in Southwest Louisiana talks to 7News about their relatives in Moore that had to take shelter to survive the tornado.

*I'll have a special report inside the region's only retail pet crematory. Find out what led Johnson Funeral Home to expand its services to include animals and from one Lake Charles family that has used the crematory services.

Make it a Sunrise day!
