Good morning!

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

Two American aid workers infected with the deadly Ebola virus in Africa have been discharged and their doctor says they pose no public health risk. One of those patients spoke out about what he called “a miraculous day” and we'll have his comments for you at noon. You can also read more about this HERE.

Also today, we'll show you how Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputies are taking part in a training course called “Canine Encounters.” It's intended to teach those who come across dogs on their daily duties how to deal with the animals. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo is there and will have a live report.

We have a story about an albino crocodile killing a fisherman. It's quite a story, we will have it at noon and you can read more here.

College students get lots of reminders on how to keep their personal belongings safe, but we'll tell you about a different kind of theft that could be far more costly.

Plus, mail delivery turned into a lifesaver for a mom trying to save her baby from choking. We'll have the happy ending to the story just days before the little boy's birthday.

Ben tells me some scattered showers and storms are still possible today as temperatures climb into the low to middle 90s. However, this should be the last day for that, as we begin to see a more dry pattern. That will mean hotter days as we head into the weekend – but just how hot will it get? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer.

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.

Have a great day everyone!
