Good morning!

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

The issue of a worker village in the Carlyss area continues to draw fire from area residents. This morning, there was another vote and KPLC's Theresa Schmidt was there. Look for an update on what happens now at noon. You can also read more HERE.

A Coast Guard air crew rescues a cargo ship worker having a medical emergency off the coast of Cameron. You can get all the details HERE.

A fourth family has sued Children's Hospital in New Orleans over a fungal disease that killed five children infected by contaminated linen. You can read more about it HERE.

Ben tells me we'll have highs near 90 with only a few pop-up showers later today to maybe cool some of us off. However, we'll have more of a chance of showers and storms after midnight. What can we expect tomorrow? Be sure to tune in to Ben's live, local forecast at noon for the answer. You can also get the latest weather conditions HERE.

We hope you join us at noon, and if you're away from the TV, you can always catch us live on kplctv.com!
