Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7 News at Noon.
 
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputies are searching for a robbery suspect. On Wednesday afternoon, a white man robbed the USA Super Stop located at 2701 South Beglis Parkway in Sulphur. Maybe you recognize the suspect from THESE surveillance pictures. 
 
Did the co-pilot of the Germanwings flight intentionally put the aircraft into a fatal dive? Tuesday's crash in the French Alps killed 150 people. At noon, we'll have the latest from the investigation, and you can read more HERE.
 
We'll also tell you what higher education leaders are considering as a possible long-term financing source for Louisiana colleges.       
 
One city experiments with a program allowing businesses to register their security cameras with the police in an effort to deter crime and identify hot spots for crime.
   
Plus, a library book, missing for nearly 50 years is finally returned. The book was last checked out in 1966. Now the question is, where has it been all these years?
 
In weather, we can expect showers and thunderstorms to develop ahead of a strong cold front. Severe weather isn't anticipated, but a few storms will be capable of strong wind gusts, heavy rain and cloud-to-ground lightning. How long will it all last, and what can we expect for the weekend?  Meteorologist Ben Terry will let you know during his live, local forecast at noon. You can also access weather 24/7 HERE.

  • Dog abandoned at local vet gets second chance

    It's unfortunately more common than you would think: pet owners dropping their animals off at the vet and never picking them up. Most offices cannot take in these animals, so they just end up at the shelter.

    A few showers possible Monday for the eclipseA few showers possible Monday for the eclipse

    Overnight, we will have clouds clear and will become mostly clear. Temperatures will slowly fall to the mid 70s. It will feel very warm due to the humidity. Heat indices will be in the 80s, throughout the night. Monday, the day of the eclipse, there is just a 30% chance of rain, so we will most likely have a few clouds during the time of the eclipse. There could be a few showers around the peak of the eclipse, but more likely, at least some clouds.
