Moment of silence set for today remembering Sept. 11th

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

*Today marks the 12th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.  A moment of silence is set for this morning to remember the lives lost, including Kevin Yokum of Lake Charles and Sulphur native, Russ Keene.

*An update this morning on a story out of Ragley involving allegations of a puppy mill.  Find out the developments from Tuesday's Beauregard Parish Police Jury meeting.

*Our hearts are heavy today for the loss of a woman that touched so many lives in Southwest Louisiana.  37-year-old Amy Hastings McGee of Sulphur passed away last night in a local hospital after battling medical complications connected to the wait for her fifth kidney transplant.  

*You don't want to miss an interview we will have in studio this morning at 6:15 with a special young man.  16-year-old Harrison Veuleman is a die hard Broncos fan and will get to meet Peyton Manning thanks to the Grant A Wish program.  Find out how you can help support the cause that makes wishes come true for young people in our area.

*It has been a busy morning with tropical disturbances.  Humberto has been upgraded to a hurricane.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will let us know if it will have any impact to us.

Make it a Sunrise day!
