Godzilla honored as an ambassador!

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

Keying a car and causing thousands of dollars in damages lands two Calcasieu Parish residents in trouble with the law. At noon we'll tell you more, and you can read about it HERE.

Meanwhile, suspicious activity at a Jennings store leads to two arrests. That story can be found HERE.

There's another food recall to tell you about: this time it involves a naturally known brand of hummus. The company is citing a possible Listeria contamination. We'll tell you which brand at noon. You can also read more HERE.

Help is on the way for women struggling with baldness. A new procedure promises to help restore hair in three to four months. Look for the story at noon.

Plus, firefighters use skill and a little creativity to to free a puppy stuck in a well. Watch the story HERE.

And get this, Godzilla is now an ambassador! The fire-breathing, building-stomping monster was welcomed in Tokyo today. At noon, we'll explain what all the excitement was about. You can also check it out HERE.

In weather, we're having another partly sunny to partly cloudy day with warm, humid conditions. We'll get into the lower 80s, and tHERE is a slight chance of an isolated shower this afternoon. Those rain chances are expected to really climb as we get into Friday. Be sure to tune in for meteorologist Ben Terry's live, local forecast at noon for all the details.

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!
