Flash Flood Watch in effect until midnight. Tropical Storm Isaias works through the area with periods of heavy rain, especially in the afternoon, wrapping up this evening, contributing to some flash flooding in areas. Winds will be gusty, upward of about 40 mph at times. A very nasty, undesirable day but a quick hitter. Things will improve tonight. High temperatures in the mid-70s.


The KU Card office is pleased to announce our new photo ID system for incoming freshmen and transfer students through TruCredential beginning fall 2020. Students will receive an email invitation to their KU email account (or, if student was part of our first round of testing the system, it would have gone to their personal email address). If a student has not received an email regarding Kutztown University ID card photo uploading or has questions, please contact the KU Card office at kucard@kutztown.edu.
