Good morning!

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

A 33-year-old Lake Charles man loses his life in an accident at the intersection of Enterprise Boulevard and 3rd Street last night. We'll have news from the police report at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, a look at how the Affordable Care Act has changed the health insurance landscape. This year's college grads have a lot to navigate, so we'll have some advice.

Plus, funding is on the way to build 18 acres of land off the Plaquemines parish coast. We'll take a look at this coastal restoration effort at noon, and you can see more HERE.

And a bizarre case of animal hoarding to tell you about today. A woman paid rent for two apartments that she basically turned into two giant litter boxes – and she didn't even live in the building! Hear more about it at noon, and read more HERE

Ben tells me the weather looks much drier over the next few days, so you can expect the temperatures to climb. Just how hot will it get? Tune in to Ben's live, local forecast at noon to find out.

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