Good morning!

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

Police say a 5-year-old Texas girl has been hospitalized, after she was trapped inside a running washing machine! Pasadena police say the child "was tumbling pretty fast" for several minutes Tuesday before a customer noticed. Look for that story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

In Allen Parish, a 19-year-old is found guilty of killing his grandfather with a shotgun blast and then stealing more than $12,000 and his grandfather's truck.

Also today, the story of a woman who was shot in the head by her abusive husband and then found out she was pregnant. Now, 20 years later, she's defied all odds and can share her story.

Imagine if you found THIS in your flower garden -- a massive python! Snake handlers were called in to remove it, but it was so big, it pushed through the slats of a dog crate, and it took quite a few people to get it out of the yard.

Plus, you can forget building castles made of sand -- one man made his masterpiece with concrete and the help of a 3-D printer.

Ben tells me we can expect pretty much the same forecast we saw yesterday. A partly sunny morning with high humidity and warm temperatures, which will lead to some showers and storms in the afternoon. Will the same hold true tomorrow and into the weekend? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. You can also go HERE for an update on tropical developments and HERE for current weather conditions.

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!
