Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

The homeless and low-income individuals in the five parish region can now pick up household items donated over the past month. KPLC's Gerron Jordan will report live from the event put on by the Southwest Louisiana Continuum of Care.

Also today, an Iowa homeowner loses everything – but not his life – thanks to his four-legged friend.

Plus, thousands of Americans hunt for wild game each year and for many that involves using a stand high in the trees. However, falls can be dangerous and have caused many injuries this hunting season.

In weather, Ben says today we'll begin a gradual warm-up after starting off very cold this morning. Tomorrow, we could see a few isolated showers. What about the weekend? You can find out more during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
