LEWES, Del. (AP)- Three World War II-era grenades have been found at a Delaware state park.           

Chief Wayne Kline with the Division of Parks and Recreation says that a visitor discovered a "pineapple-style" explosive ordnance at Cape Henlopen State Park on Tuesday, and the Army Corps of Engineers found two more on Wednesday.           

Kline says authorities couldn't determine if the heavily corroded objects were training items or live grenades used by the military. All three were rendered safe and destroyed.           

Cape Henlopen is known for its World War II-era observation towers, and the grenades were found in an isolated area near Fort Miles. Kline says it's not unusual to find decades-old ordnances in the park, but, unlike the ones uncovered this week, they're usually found near the beach.

    Locals in Salisbury React To Trump's National Emergency

    President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday after congress refused to completely fund his wall at the  U.S.-Mexico border. Congress approved a spending deal to avoid a shutdown, which did not include the $5.7 billion President Trump requested in border wall funding.

    Salisbury University Political Science Chair Adam Hoffman says the move may result in severe push back from democratic congressional leaders, and may even result in legal action.
