Good morning!

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

Have you received a call about our debit card or credit card being deactivated? At noon, we'll tell you what an area bank is telling its customers and non-customers alike. You can also read more about this apparently widespread phone scam at http://bit.ly/UcxfRQ.

Students at Louisiana-Lafayette have been told to stay in their on-campus apartments and commuters have been sent home after police found two suspicious devices. That story continues to develop so check for updates at http://bit.ly/1qH483D and watch for the update at noon.

Also today, a look at red-tail hawks along the grounds of the state Capitol in Baton Rouge. We'll show you how it's not unusual for them to dine on the observation deck where tourists gather. You can read more at http://bit.ly/1tRzJFD.

Plus, a 19-year-old pilot flies into the record books. He completes a world-record attempt to become the youngest person to fly solo around the world.

Ben tells me we can expect sunshine and temperatures around 90 this afternoon. We even have less humidity! How long will that last? What about the coming weekend? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. You can check the seven-day forecast at http://bit.ly/1cs5ZBR

Remember, if you're away from the TV watch us live at http://bit.ly/1lCk0p5 or through the KPLC News and Weather Apps for Apple or Android devices.

Have a great day everyone!
