Good Monday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*Search and rescue teams are now focusing on the area between Singapore and Indonesia for the missing AirAsia plane. There are four countries aiding in the search, but Indonesia is already preparing for the worst, warning that they believe their best educated guess from the coordinates is that the plane is at the bottom of the Java Sea.
*Here at home, there are several new audits being released this morning. We'll bring you up to speed on the results from auditors who reviewed revenues for the city of Iowa's utility fund, DOTD highway planning/construction projects, and foster care reimbursements for the Office of Juvenile Justice.
*Gas prices in the Lake Area have dropped below $2.00/gallon at some stations. We are going live to one of the convenience stores this morning where prices continue to drop.
*This week on Sunrise, we will be unveiling some of the most talked about stories from the year on www.kplctv.com. Find out what story holds our number three spot today - and just a hint: it involves a local Wal-Mart and a self-created parking spot.
*Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us this morning is off to a drizzly and cool start and there's even cooler weather to come this week. Don't miss his pinpoint forecast.
