Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Deadly weather sweeps across the deep south overnight. We'll tell you about multiple fatalities in Alabama and Mississippi as a line of tornadoes moved through the area. You can also read more HERE.

Also today, it's called "Cajun Caviar," a delicacy from a prehistoric fish straight out of the Louisiana swamps. We'll show you how it's making its way to fine dining spots. Look for the story at noon, and you can get more info HERE.

Plus, the phrase "big things come in small packages" applies to the latest medical advancement. It's a wireless pacemaker that can be installed without surgery.

Ben tells me our temperatures will climb into the middle 80's this afternoon ahead of a cold front which should make for another warm and muggy day. We do have a chance of rain – but how much? Check out Ben's live, local weather at noon for the answer.

And some students from Vincent Settlement Elementary get a lesson in general aviation – getting to see inside all sorts of aircraft – including helicopters.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
