I-10 EB in Rayne shutdown after crash

Happy Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*An 18-wheeler crashes and spills its load of plywood on I-10 eastbound in Rayne, causing a shutdown as crews work to clean it up.  We'll keep you updated on this traffic situation this morning.

*The City of Lake Charles puts a moratorium on boathouses and piers on the lakefront.  Shell Beach Drive residents launched the idea in order to come up with some restrictions over concerns that lakefront views will be blocked.

*A Lake Charles man charged with child sex crimes is sentenced to 25 years in prison without probation or parole.  

*Authorities in Shreveport discover the remains of a woman missing since last week.  Annie Bond did not show up to work last week, prompting her co-workers to contact police.  Hear who is in custody connected to her death.

*Meetings are happening today in Afghanistan that could determine how long the U.S. stays there.  We'll tell you about the draft agreement reached between the two countries.

*It's time to apply for scholarships if you're planning on attending McNeese State University next Fall.  We'll have a live interview with Ralynn Castete of MSU to talk about upcoming deadlines.

Make it a Sunrise day!
