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

There's a local food recall to tell you about today. Big Easy Foods Louisiana Cuisine is recalling a little over 93,000 pounds of both raw and cooked stuffed chicken product due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen. Look for further info at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, a Florida pilot makes a last minute decision after his plane loses power. Find out how the 92-year-old managed to land safely, avoiding injury and damage.

And talk about a hero! We'll have the story of an incredible dog -- a dog who threw himself in front of a bus to save his owner! Wow! The 8-year-old golden retriever is the companion and guide for a legally blind woman, and I can't wait to see the whole story! If you can't wait either, check it out HERE.

In weather, look for storms to develop by midday and early afternoon -- mainly in the inland areas and then continuing north of I-10 through the late afternoon and early evening. Some of those storms could include heavy downpours. How long will this pattern last? Meteorologist Ben Terry will let you know during his live, local forecast at noon. You can also always access weather information for your neighborhood on our weather apps for Apple or Android devices.

Remember, if you're away from the TV, watch us live at http://bit.ly/1lCk0p5 or through the KPLC News apps for Apple or Android devices.

Have a great day!

    We only saw around 70-percent coverage during the eclipse, but that didn't stop residents and students from getting hyped up about it. At Sam Houston High School, Sara Blankenship's Biology class shifted gears to learn about this major event, a total solar eclipse. The first time we've seen one across the US in a while and 9th grade students like Allison Hull and Ben Martin are excited. “I think it’s really cool because 99 years ago was the last total one which is what ...

    While many people across the United States watched today's solar eclipse with special eclipse glasses, some students at Dequincy Elementary had a different option.  Smiles were on many faces of the third graders at the school, who were able to view the solar eclipse through a special Dobsonian telescope. This was all thanks to a local amateur Astronomer, Blake Gaspard.  Gaspard heard the school was interested in safe activities for the eclipse so he off...
