Good morning!

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

A freak accident in upstate New York – strong winds launch an inflatable bounce house high above the ground with three children inside! Two of those children were seriously injured. Look for that story at noon and you can read more HERE.

Could food dyes cause behavior problems in some children? We'll tell you about new research that indicates artificial food coloring could worsen behavioral problems.

Imagine never running out of your favorite color of lipstick or eye shadow  -- well imagine no more. A recent Harvard grad has come up with a way for people to create their own make-up color and then print it out in the comfort of their own home. Look for that story at noon and you can see more HERE.

Plus, a blind man is rescued after a fire started in his Texas home, but it wasn't the fire alarm that woke him up – it was his dog!

Ben tells me temperatures are already cooler in the wake of a cold front. There's also a wind advisory for coastal parishes. The clouds should begin to clear out tonight as temperatures drop even lower. Just how cool will it get? Tune in to Ben's live, local weather at noon for the answer.

We'll also show you how the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's office and State Police celebrate National Police Week.

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