Good morning!

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

We'll explain how a hit-and-run in Moss Bluff ended with the suspected driver crashing into a home.

That bridge collapse in Washington State continues to make news, and now those who survived that plunge into the waters below the bridge are speaking out.

As we enter summer, spending time outdoors is more prevalent. However, once you go outside you can say "hello" to all sorts of pesky insects – from the irritating mosquito to the swarming termite – but there's one tiny pest you really need to watch out for because it can pack quite a punch. We're talking ticks, folks. 

Speaking of the great outdoors, if you venture outside today be prepared for the heat. Ben tells me our conditions should be very similar to what we saw on Memorial Day. Highs will climb to the mid to upper 80's. What about the rest of our work week? Look for the answer during Ben's live, local forecast at noon. 

Would you like cheesecake from New York for dessert? Well, for the price of shipping, you could get gourmet food from just about anywhere. We'll explain a new service that's sure to tempt any foodie's taste buds. 

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