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.

The future of Savannah's police chief hangs in the air this morning, as information has surfaced regarding new allegations against the Chief, this time of sexual harassment.  City officials spent hours behind closed doors Thursday discussing the Chief's future. Several sources told New 3 that Chief Lovett will turn in his retirement papers today. However, we spoke directly with the Chief last night, who says he has no intentions of retiring. However if he doesn't, officials tell us he could face the possibility of being fired.

In Washington, the US Senate is set to vote on continuing to fund the government. After voting for cloture on Wednesday, the senate will now vote today on whether to avert a government shutdown. The shut down will happen on Monday if congress doesn't pass a government funding bill. Once they pass their own version, it will be sent back to the house. Senate democrats are expected to strip out the de fund-Obamacare measure the house passed.

Also, a quick traffic alert to tell you about this morning. Beginning tomorrow, Saturday September 28th, at 6am, both westbound lanes of Abercorn Street between Wilshire Avenue and Largo Drive in Chatham County will be closed for concrete operations. Weather permitting, the closure is expected to last all day, until 7pm. Officials urge motorists to find an alternate route as delays are expected.
