Rare and deadly amoeba confirmed in LA water system

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

*A rare and deadly amoeba is found in a northern Louisiana water system.  It's the same one that caused the death of a child in south Louisiana over the summer.  Find out what the CDC is saying about the presence of this amoeba.

*Lake Charles City Council member, Mary Morris, is asking the Department of Transportation and Development to look at ways to improve a curve on I-10 near the Highway 171 overpass.  Multiple wrecks have been reported at this spot, including one Tuesday.

*Louisiana's congressional delegation is no longer alone in its fight to hold back increases to national flood insurance rates.  You'll hear how many states have joined the fight and if there's any hope of seeing a delay.

*It's day nine of the government shutdown and today we may actually see a vote where democrats and republicans agree.  It could provide benefits being withheld from military families.

Make it a Sunrise day!
