Good Thursday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*A driver slams into the Tobacco Plus on Ryan Street in Lake Charles overnight. Find out what led to the crash and how close the car came to the employees working behind the cash register. You'll hear from one of those employees this morning.
*As if flood insurance is not high enough, it might be going up so much that some Louisiana homeowners say they could lose their homes. We'll take you inside the debate in Baton Rouge that took center stage at a special meeting.
*Do you have a question about what's going on in Washington, D.C. right now? U.S. Senator David Vitter is hosting an open house today where you can let him know the issues that are important to you.
*More help is available this week for local folks interested in enrolling in the nation's new health insurance plan. We'll share that information with you this morning.
Make it a Sunrise day!
