If your mom is also blowing up your phone (“Don’t drown! It floods!”) then you know that Hurricane Joaquin is swirling off the coast, gearing up for some crazy weekend wind and rain. We’ve compiled the list of this weekend’s canceled events and we’ll keep it updated as the weather gets worse. If you know of a canceled event that we haven’t listed please email connelly@charlestoncitypaper.com.

On the plus side, our surfer friends tell us this storm could mean major swells. At least someone can have some fun.
