Joaquin looks like it will head out to sea, instead of making landfall along the US East Coast this weekend. Forecasters now expect little direct impact from the storm, though Maryland is still soaking from a front that could drop several more inches of rain in the next 24 hours. Playing it safe, Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency yesterday. Despite the change in the forecast, a lot of weekend events, including the Fells Point Fun Festival, have been postponed or cancelled.
