The earliest we are expected to feel any direct impact from Hurricane Joaquin now looks to be late Sunday or Monday, but events are already being cancelled or postponed for this weekend.

A second, earlier bad weather system lasting through the weekend and anticipation of what a powerful storm like Joaquin could do when it gets here, has caused the shelving of these South Jersey weekend events.
