Customers & businesses affected by SNAP card problems

Good Evening,

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

The big story today was the big inconvenience for SNAP (food stamp) card recipients after a power outage affected more than 15 states, including Louisiana. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo talked with one card holder and a store about the problems they were experiencing and when they expect to resume service.

Plus, a missed opportunity to end the government shutdown and avoid default. Brian Mooar will have a complete wrap from Washington.

And it's started raining in parts of Southwest Louisiana since the last time we checked in… Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton is in tonight for Cedric and will tell you how much more we can expect.

Also a WIN for LSU! Rebecca Cade is on the Sports desk tonight and will have the latest, plus a look at other college matchups around the region.

We'll see you tonight at Ten. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
