Mother and Children killed in fire laid to rest

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on today.

A local softball team doing relief work in Oklahoma and attending the Women's College World Series has to take shelter during yesterday's tornado outbreak. We'll hear from them about the experience.

Plus, a mother and her two children who died in a house fire Wednesday morning are laid to rest. We talk to the family about the tragic loss.

An effort to keep kids out of trouble and out of jail gets the community out in the streets to get their message across. KPLC's Olivia Vidal is there for the Juvenile Justice walk and has the story.

Also bikers and classic car lovers came out this morning to help support troubled youth of Harbor House. We'll show you the sights and sounds of the 5th annual B.A.A.K Benefit.

And the U.S.S. Orleck Naval Museum was making contact with other Naval Museum's around the world this weekend. We talk with local HAM radio operators about why they do it and some of the surprising ships they've made contact with this weekend.

It's also the first day of the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will touch on that and have your complete forecast.

We'll see you tonight at six for these stories and more. Until then we are always on at kplctv.com.
