'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

NWS said this means that conditions are favorable for the formation of tornadoes in the area.

In addition, strong to severe thunderstorms are possible with heavy downpours, wind gusts to 70 miles per hour and hail to 1.5 inches in diameter.

NWS advises residents to continue to monitor the weather and take any necessary precautions.
