Flood insurance compromise, voter registration, bead donations

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

*Congress is rolling back the overhaul of the federal flood insurance program.  The measure would allow sellers to pass along their subsidized, below-market insurance rates to new buyers.  We'll tell you what that means to home owners in flood prone areas.

*A family of three in East Lake Charles is now without a home after a devastating fire overnight.  We'll share the information we know this morning from the local chapter of the American Red Cross.

*Today is the last day to register to vote in the April 5 primary election.  Find out some of the big items on the ballot this spring.

*Family and friends of a missing UNO college student are trying to get the word out about her disappearance.  They say 19-year-old Hayley Howard has not been seen since early Saturday morning. 

*Today we will see the first high-level meeting between the U.S. and Russia since violence broke out in Ukraine, toppling the country's government.  We'll tell you what Secretary of State John Kerry is pushing in his meeting with Russia's foreign minister.

*On this Ash Wednesday, many area Christians will be going to church to mark the start of the Lenten season.  Are you giving up anything for Lent?  Let us know on our 7News Sunrise facebook page.

*Wondering what to do with all of your Mardi Gras beads?  You can donate them and help the Autism Society of Southwest Louisiana.  We'll tell you how in a live interview during our 6:00 hour of Sunrise.

*It's still chilly this morning, but meteorologist Ben Terry tells us we are in store for a warm up over the next few days!

Make it a Sunrise day!
