Good Thursday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*Breaking news overnight from Pensacola, Florida. A gas explosion at a prison has killed two people and injured at least 100. We'll have live images from the scene this morning as emergency crews get a handle on the situation and a partially collapsed building.
*From raising the state's minimum wage to making it easier to get hunting licenses, it's set to be a busy day for Louisiana lawmakers. We'll have a look ahead at today's agenda.
*Families of the children who died from worsened infections after contact with a fungus on bed linens at Children's Hospital in New Orleans are asking if hospital officials tried to hide important information. We'll bring you up to speed on these allegations today.
*Contraband Days kicks off this week and we have strongman, Jeff "T-Rex" Bankens joining us this morning to perform feats of strength!
*A Sulphur police officer is claiming self defense after fatally shooting a dog. But that's not what an eyewitness and the dog's owner are telling 7News.
*It's a cool start to the day! Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking a nice weather pattern and will have a look ahead to the weekend.
