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.

President Obama is set to make his case for a military strike on Syria to the American public tonight in a prime-time address. The president will also make his case for US Military intervention in the war-torn country to senators on Capitol Hill today. In an interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie on Monday, Mr. Obama says he has not decided if he would still launch a military strike if congress did not pass the use of force resolution. A senate test vote was supposed to take place Wednesday, but it has since been postponed.

Also, Savannah Police Chief , Willie Lovette is under fire this morning after two men, Captain Dean Fagerstrom and Captain Charles Hall both filed separate law suits against the Chief, claiming racial discrimination. The two cite an incident back in 2011 when the Chief allegedly said a job opening was "for white's only". WSAV attempted to contact the city's attorney, Malcolm McKenzie, but were told he was in court. News 3 also called Savannah City Manager Stephanie Cutter and Chief Willie Lovett as well, but neither were available for comment or returned our calls.

Plus, Second Harvest Food Bank is asking for your help this morning, a week after the roof of their freezer collapsed, spoiling thousands of pounds of food. As it stands now, only 10 cans of tuna and two jars of peanut butter are left on the shelves, while organizers say they need one million pounds of food to make it through the holiday season. If you would like to make a donation, you are asked to drop it off at Second Harvest or any local Bank of America.
