Morgan City mayor declares state of emergency


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

We have a packed show for you this morning. We'll bring you the latest on the power outage in Morgan City. It looks like it could be no air conditioning for a while for people there. There was another shooting in Baton Rouge as well. Deputies are still looking into it this morning. On much lighter notes, we'll have one of the top professional eaters in the world in studio. He's getting ready for the big hot dog contest in Coney Island. And, we have a new member of the Morning Show family to introduce to you. Don't forget you can catch our 9Online webcasts three times throughout the day. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route.
