Do you have old 'new' tires? - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Do you have old 'new' tires?

(Source: MGN Online) (Source: MGN Online)

Good morning!

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

The head of FEMA is saying officials are "going neighborhood to neighborhood" to make sure Oklahoma tornado victims get the help they need. Craig Fugate arrived in the state on Tuesday and today Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano arrives. In the meantime, efforts across the country are aimed at helping the victims. We'll tell you about how some local folks are lending a hand as well.

Also today, if your tires are not in good condition, you're just waiting for an accident to happen. We'll show you how you can tell the age of those tires you're about to buy.

Plus, it's the antibiotic so popular many people know it by name. But we'll show you how using this treatment could be a matter of life and death.

In weather, Ben tells me we're getting a break from additional storms as some drier air comes in, but he adds there may be a few lingering pop-up showers in the afternoon. Those clouds will hang around tonight, but what about tomorrow? You can get the answer to that during Ben's live, local forecast at noon. 

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

    Submit your question to news@kplctv.com. QUESTION: My landlord posted a five-day Notice to Vacate on my door because I was a little late with the rent. Does that mean I have to have all my stuff out in five days?

    A few scattered showers this afternoonA few scattered showers this afternoon

    We will start today with partly cloudy skies, building up for scattered thunderstorms later this afternoon. Rain chances are up to 40% today, so we should not see as much rain as yesterday. Most of the rain will come to an end by the late afternoon. After sunset, rain chances will go back down to zero percent overnight with mostly clear skies. In between any showers, we will have warm temperatures for southwest Louisiana.
