SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) - Good Morning. John and Britney here with a look at what's coming up on 7News Sunrise.

A group planning to buy the Isle of Capri casino in Westlake has released its plans to improve the facility. Members of the Westlake City Council saw designs for new slot machines, improved food and hotel rooms.

The man who robbed the Kinder McDonald's with a hammer was arrested overnight. We will have more details later this morning.

Plus, more than 300,000 people are signed up for Louisiana's Medicaid expansion program, according to recent figures from the Department of Health. We'll tell you how many more people need to enroll in order for the program to reach the state's projected cost savings.

And the flooding in South Louisiana didn't just have a devastating impact on homes. Farmers are facing the agriculture damage left behind.

In weather, much-improved weather ahead with still plenty of afternoon heat, but humidity will be slightly on the decrease through the day and evening. Highs in the middle 90s. Heat index this afternoon around 98 to 100. Rain chances less than 20% through Thursday. Tropics remain active but nothing threatening the U.S. Meteorologist Ben Terry will have more coming up in your 'First Alert Forecast.'

Remember, if you are not near a TV this morning, you can watch us live on the desktop or your smartphone.
