Good morning!

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

We’ll have the incredible story of man who says his dog drove him to the store to buy some corn! Yep, that’s what he said as he was being arrested for animal cruelty and DUI. He had left the dog in a car that registered 123 degrees inside. If that wasn’t bad enough, there was a can of gasoline inside, causing the vehicle to reek from the smell. More on the story HERE.

A problem years in the making for some South Americans. A notorious drug lord built a mansion in the jungle and had all kinds of exotic animals there. Most of those were removed once the drug lord was captured, but some hippos were left there, and now everyone is dumbfounded on what to do with them.

Speaking of animals, we’ll show you how to prepare your pets for loud fireworks this July 4th holiday. You can also read more on comforting your canine HERE.

Also today, with the right treatment and the right amount of time, doctors can save stroke victims. Now there’s a first-of-its-kind ambulance in the U.S. that offers immediate treatment for symptoms of a stroke.

Ben tells me that cold front that pushed through last night, bringing thunderstorms, and it's still parked along the coastline. He says that’s close enough to combine with daytime heating to spark a few isolated afternoon storms. What can we expect tonight and into our weekend? Tune in at noon for Ben’s live, local forecast and the latest on Hurricane Arthur. You can also read more about the storm HERE.

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