Remembering the astronauts of Space Shuttle Columbia - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Remembering the astronauts of Space Shuttle Columbia

Good Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*11 years ago this week, the Space Shuttle Columbia broke apart in the skies above Western Louisiana and East Texas.  See what's being done to honor the lives of the seven astronauts killed in the explosion.

*We are still waiting for an autopsy report for 27-year-old Lacie Fontenot, whose body was found in Lake Arthur.  She was discovered face down in a shallow ditch Friday on the west side of Lake Arthur.

*Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne will be a McNeese State University today talking about ghosts of Louisiana's political past.  It's part of the Sage series and we'll tell you how you can be a part of the lecture series.

*How does a new Ryan Street exit ramp in downtown Lake Charles sound?  That will be up for discussion tonight at the Downtown Development Authority meeting.  We'll have a preview of what's in store.

*If you travel on Choupique Road, make plans to take another route.  Starting at 7:00 A.M., the road will be shut down for the replacement of a bridge.  We'll tell you how long this closure is expected to last.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    Afternoon Storms continue todayAfternoon Storms continue today

    For the rest of the day, there will be more storms and showers that pop up in the afternoon. This is the new normal with the heat during the afternoon, and the extra moisture in the air. Not everyone will see rain, but if you are caught under one of these showers, you will likely see some heavy rainfall at times. Temperatures will still be hot today, especially where there is no rain. Highs will be in the lower 90s. Tonight, the rain should come to an end.
