18-wheeler still blocking part of I-10 in Lake Charles

Good Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The fourth major accident in just three days along I-10 westbound in Lake Charles is still being cleaned up this morning.  Traffic is down to one lane at the spot where I-10 hits HWY 171.  We'll keep you posted on the traffic situation this morning.

*A video that shows a Louisiana swamp tour guide in the water feeding alligators from his mouth has gone viral and it's now forcing the enforcement of a law in Jefferson Parish for safety reasons.  See the video for yourself and find out if any laws were actually broken.

*New legislation signed by Governor Bobby Jindal could close at least three of the state's five abortion clinics.  Find out when this law is set to take effect.

*A Department of Veteran's Affairs audit finds significant wait times for patients at several medical centers, including the one in Shreveport.  We'll tell you what's being done to get medical services expedited for our service men and women.

*Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is back in the United States for the first time since his capture by the Taliban five years ago.  He's on his way to Texas where he will continue the reintegration process.

*We are cooking a beefy cheese dip with Cookie Hauser this morning in the Sunrise Kitchen!  You don't want to miss this easy and tasty recipe.

Make it a Sunrise day!
