MORGAN CITY, LA (WAFB) - A Morgan City woman and her husband have claimed a $2 million Powerball prize.

Amy and Warren Sturges matched all five white balls in the February 16th drawing.

She said her two teens urged her to check her ticket after hearing that a winning ticket was sold in Morgan City.

"Now I'll have to send something to my mom so she'll believe me," said Amy.

The couple had already planned to buy a new camper before winning the prize.

"Maybe now I can get an upgrade," said Warren.
