Good morning!

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

If you win at the casino or in the lottery and you owe child support or other debts to state agencies, the state can now take your winnings. The Governor signed a measure that gives a state debt collection office the authority to go after that money. We'll explain at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Two local initiatives for better living were unveiled today. We'll tell you about a new clinic in Oberlin and take you to an Eat Healthy Southwest Louisiana event.

Also today, a teen with a passion for produce is managing his family's summer farmer's market. We'll see how the 13-year-old salesman hopes to one day operate the business himself. More on that story HERE.

Plus, the future of drone technology is expected to come from the front lines to the farm. We'll show you how one southern cooperative is testing drones – hoping they become a resource for farmers. You can check out the operation HERE as well.

Speaking of the front lines, we'll show you a viral video of a cat welcoming home his owner, a soldier. You can watch the touching reunion HERE.

Ben tells me the very wet conditions will continue through the early evening. Severe weather isn't expected, but dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning will accompany some of the stronger storms. Will Thursday be a repeat of today? What about the weekend? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answers. You can also check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

Remember, if you're away from the TV at noon, you can always tune in to to watch us online and your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!
