Coastal Sunrise: Top 3 on 3

Posted: Updated:

Here's a quick look at your Top 3 on 3 stories you'll need to know before heading out this morning.

We're keeping a close eye on rising river waters across our region. On Thursday morning we headed down to King's Ferry on Highway 17, where waters were certainly higher than average on the Ogeechee River. That's coming from all the rain we've had, as well as a release into the savannah river from J Strom Thurmond Dam.

Also, all this water is causing some problems on the roads. In Effingham County, water from the Savannah River has shut down Edwards loop, near Springfield Road. News 3 will keep you posted on any other road closure as we learn about them right here on WSAV.com.@

Plus, several dozen people gathered in Daffin Park Thursday night, to honor Trayvon Martin, the teen shot and killed by Florida neighborhood watchmen George Zimmerman. Compassion, love, and understanding, that was the message and something those in attendance say we are seriously lacking in our community. They say, Trayvon is gone, but he should serve as example of what happens when we use weapons and not words to solve our differences. The group reminded us that every day, mothers are losing sons, children are losing fathers and families are broken, all because of violence.
