Blown-out well burning near Kinder - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Blown-out well burning near Kinder

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

*A blown-out well continues to burn this morning near Kinder.  It could take a few days before it subsides.  We'll tell you about how it's affecting people that live in that area.

*Several road construction projects have been proposed across Southwest Louisiana as we gear up for an economic boom.  Find out how your voice can be heard as part of this public input period.

*Early voting for an upcoming election begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday, November 9th.  Some voters in Calcasieu, Jeff Davis and Vernon Parishes will head to the polls on November 16th. We'll have a preview of what's on the ballot.

*Our Sunrise crew's favorite viral video of the week is of a baby's emotional reaction to her mother's singing voice.  Have you seen it?  We'll have the story about baby Marie Lynne's tears that have captured worldwide attention.

*Starting today, food stamps are being cut because the stimulus money that boosted the benefits for the last four years ran out last night.  You'll learn how the cuts will affect people dependent on this help and why more cuts are coming.

*Many of us saw some terrible weather on Thursday.  We'll take a tour of some of the storm damage and get a much better forecast for the weekend with meteorologist Ben Terry.

Make it a Sunrise day!
