Happy Thursday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*It's a cold morning, but the good news is that most of the ice in Southwest Louisiana has melted. That means roads are open and schools are back in session today.
*The ice is still in issue in other parts of the state. We'll tell you what our neighbors to the east are dealing with for their morning commutes.
*The 75th Annual Southwest District Livestock Show and Rodeo kicks off today and I'll be there from 6:00-7:00 A.M. bringing you live interviews about what's in store. It's called the "Greatest Show on Dirt" and it just might be the event you need to break out of the house after a cold couple of days.
*Historical markers will be unveiled today recognizing Lake Charles buildings that are no longer standing. Find out what landmarks will be marked and how you can be a part of the event.
*The president of Magnolia LNG tells us what is next for his company's Lake Charles project. You'll hear from Maurice Brand this morning about the impact this project will have on Southwest Louisiana.
Make it a Sunrise day!
