newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7 News at Noon.

Many parts of Southeast Texas have been under water since late last night, following hours of heavy rainfall brought on by the remnants of "Bill."

Multiple rescues were made, and many roads and state highways were closed. At noon, we'll take a look at what's happened so far.

Closer to home, that heavy rain did affect the extreme western edges of Beauregard and Vernon parishes, and today the highest rain chances in our area include the same locations. How long will that last, and what about the rest of the region as we head closer to the weekend? Meteorologist Ben Terry will let you know during his live, local forecast at noon.
