Good morning!

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

A multi-vehicle accident on I-10 eastbound over the Atchafalaya Basin is causing quite a traffic nightmare this morning. It's about five miles east of Whiskey Bay. That roadway is completely blocked at this time. Check out the situation on this LIVE TRAFFIC CAM.

A former area high school teacher accused of sending sexually explicit pictures of herself to a student makes a plea to an obscenity charge. You can read more about this case HERE.

A 14-year-old gets arrested for allegedly assaulting a local teacher.

Area river pilots will get a nearly 14 percent pay raise in the new year.

Also today, we'll show you how some women are taking the phrase "beauty is pain" to a whole new level.

Plus, a Virginia woman has had a pet bird for over 20 years and today we'll find out how she almost lost her wedding ring while changing his diaper!

In weather, we started the day about 20 degrees warmer today with cloudy skies. Ben says expect some sunshine later in the day with highs in the lower to mid 70s. Will that warmer weather carry over into the weekend? Find out 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 weekend!
