A double-billed event by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony set for Wednesday at the Cox Arena was moved to Nov. 10 and nearby Qualcomm Stadium is being used as an evacuation shelter, meaning that the SDSU vs. BYU football game planned for Saturday has been canceled and a Sunday NFL match between the Texans and Chargers is still up in the air. Nor will the Lakers and Utah Jazz grace the boards at the San Diego Sports Arena

The House of Blues in San Diego pulled the plug on a Wed. Boys Like Girls & All Time Low show and a Peter Frampton show on Friday has been canceled as well.
