Good Morning. John Bridges and Kayla Courvell here with a look at what's coming up on 7News Sunrise.

More than a dozen people are injured after a car drives into pedestrians on a sidewalk in Melbourne, Australia.

The National Weather Service confirms it was a tornado that tore through DeQuincy early Wednesday morning.

Calcasieu Police Jurors are expected to adopt their largest spending plan ever when they sit down tonight to approve the 2018 budget.

As north Lake Charles looks for economic growth, some are wondering if the answer may be in creating a new scrap metal processing center.

Pay raises have been approved for city employees at Wednesday night's city council meeting. 

Plus, a 7-year-old Lake Charles boy who was born blind, gets an early holiday present from friends and family. In this week's Hometown Hero, see how a need for a talking braille typewriter turned into a Christmas dream come true.

And Apple is reportedly admitting to slowing down older iPhones but the company says they have good reason to.

In weather, a dense fog advisory is in effect until 8 a.m. today. Visibility might be an issue while traveling on your way to work this morning. Remember to slow down and use your low beams. Meteorologist Grant Roberts will have the latest in your 'First Alert Forecast.'
