66 LA flu deaths, Lundi Gras celebrations, cold blast

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

*Louisiana health officials say another child has died from the flu.  That brings the total number of children dying from the flu this season in the state to five.  The flu has claimed 66 lives in Louisiana since October of last year.

*On this Lundi Gras, krewes are gearing up for the Cinderella night of the season: the Royal Gala!  We'll tell you how you can attend the evening's festivities at the Lake Charles Civic Center.

*Fat Tuesday is going to be a jam-packed day!  From the Krewe de Charlie Sioux Block Party to the big Krewe of Krewes parade, we'll give you the rundown to help you plan for all the fun.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking temperatures in the 30s this morning.  It's quite a change from the 70s we felt over the weekend.  He's tracking the cold front and tells us about the threat for some overnight freezing.

Make it a Sunrise day!
