Barry is expected to grow into a hurricane by the time it makes landfall, the National Hurricane Center said.

Tropical Storm Barry prompted an early end to the Delta Sigma Theta convention in New Orleans and while that was disappointing news for attendees, it led to a big donation for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

When the convention at the Morial Convention Center came to an early end Friday, the sorority worked with catering company Centerplate Food Services to donate more than 17,000 meals to the food bank.

The meals will remain in the food bank’s cooler over the weekend and be delivered to storm victims, shelters and first responders as soon as it is safe to do so.
