How energy efficient are your appliances?

Good morning!

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

We'll have the aftermath of that interstate bridge collapse in Washington state. Authorities say a truck hauling drilling equipment caused the incident which sent vehicles into the water.  Several people had to be rescued. Apparently the top right front corner of the oversized load struck several trusses on the bridge. We'll have more on what happened at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, when shopping for a new appliance you'll see most are labeled "energy efficient."   But some models conserve more energy than others. We'll tell you what you should look for when shopping.

Plus, for weeks one tiger hasn't been feeling well, wait until you see what vets pulled out of this sick tiger's stomach.

In weather, Ben tells me by show time at noon temperatures will be in the mid 80's. By the afternoon some thunderstorms could pop up, but should diminish by early evening. What can we expect for the big Memorial Day weekend? Be sure to check out all the details during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

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