Breaking overnight: Cleveland kidnap victims speak out

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*Breaking overnight: the Cleveland kidnap victims speak out.  We hear from the three women at the center of the kidnapping case that captivated the country in a just-released youtube video.

*Some folks living in Sulphur express concern over a proposed RV park.  We'll take you inside the meeting to hear about the council's decision to defer the item until next month's meeting.

*Brave kids in Beaumont take part in an alligator-catching contest.  See the video from the event that has kids and parents enjoying the spectacle.

*A rainbow flag sparks debate in Lafayette.  For some, it's a symbol of progress in Acadiana, but some people aren't happy to see it.

*Tropical Storm Chantal has changed a bit in structure over the last several hours.  Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking the projected path and will update us in his forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
