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!
