From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

A chemical release at a plant in Geismar this morning resulted in a shelter in place. We'll get you caught up on the situation as you're waking up. In studio, we're talking with US Sen. David Vitter. We'll talk about the future of higher education here in Louisiana with the gubernatorial candidate. And, the circus is in town, so why not go? Gerron Jordan does exactly that - joins the circus. It should be an interesting morning.
