Update at the bottom.

The Post and Courier is reporting that Russia's Kruzenshtern encountered a powerful storm while the 376-foot ship was headed to Charleston.

Luckily, it won't unduly affect the ship's appearance at Harbor Fest.

Go get the story.

Update June 22, early afternoon: The Post and Courier has added a photo of the damage to the ship.
