Cell phone video shows LCPD storm food stamp office

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

*Cell phone video shows Lake Charles police storming the food stamp office with guns drawn.  Reports had come thought that a man had a gun inside the office.  We'll show you the video this morning and tell you about the man taken away in hand cuffs.

*The battle to stop skyrocketing flood insurance rates may soon see more light at the end of the tunnel.  This week, state lawmakers released details of an insurance reform bill to help homeowners keep their rates low and their families safe.

*In Allen Parish, Fire Protection District #3 in Grant is the subject of a legislative audit.  The report points to possible misuse of fuel.

*If you're in and around the Calcasieu Ship Channel today, be aware that a drill will be taking place.  Local and federal agencies will have response vehicles in the controlled exercise.

*The legal battle over tough new abortion restrictions in Texas is likely to wind up before the U.S. Supreme court.  A federal judge ruled that a key provision of the law is unconstitutional.  Find out why critics say most Texas clinics would be forced to close.

Make it a Sunrise day!
