More details in deadly industrial accidents near Baton Rouge

Good Afternoon,

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

A change you'll want to note: Due to golf there will be no 7 News at Six today.

We'll have the latest on two deadly industrial explosions near the Baton Rouge area. Tonight you'll hear from residents who live near the facility in Donaldsonville about the threat that is always there.

And this time of year the threat of another Hurricane is always on the minds of those who live on the coast, especially New Orleans residents. Nearly eight years after Hurricane Rita the New Orleans levee system that protects the West Bank is finally finished.

Buying that first home can be scary. To ease the process the Calcasieu Housing Department hosted a Home ownership Expo. KPLC's Haley Rush talks with prospective homeowners who were looking for advice.

We'll also take you to the City of Sulphur's Farmers Market where you can find fresh produce, honey, homemade jam, and handmade jewelry.

Also if you've been outside – I don't have to tell you it's HOT! Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will have your forecast.

We'll see you tonight at ten for Nightcast. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
