New from overnight: explosions rock propane gas plant

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*New from overnight: a series of explosions rock a propane gas plant in central Florida, forcing residents within one mile to evacuate.  Find out how many people have been taken to the hospital in the wake of the explosions.

*It's a small parasite with a big name: cyclospora.  It's causing a rash on intestinal infections as the number of people being sickened rises.  We'll tell you about the parasite and how it gets around.

*The DA in East Baton Rouge Parish says at least 10 gay men were arrested in an undercover operation at a park, having to do with sexual agreements.  Find out how a law ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court is now being used to show that these men did not break any laws.

*From morbidly obese to 5K finisher - a dream comes true for Freeda Beloney of Lake Charles.  See the video of her crossing the finish line and celebrating her 100 pound weight loss journey.

Make it a Sunrise day!
