If you have been watching the national news coverage over the past few weeks, you are aware of the impact hurricane Florence has had along the Grand Strand. And while the weather is sunny and parts of Myrtle Beach are indeed back in business, surrounding areas have experienced record flooding due to the rising and cresting of the Waccamaw River and Intracoastal Waterway. Several roadways in and out of the area have been closed, and visitors have been encouraged to travel by airplane when traveling to North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach for vacation. As the impacted areas continue to recover, including Conway, Socastee and Georgetown, here are a few things we want you to know.
The Road To Recovery
Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach were thankfully spared much of the devastation and things have pretty much returned to normal for us. But the road to recovery will take time for some local residents. Homes have been flooded, people have been displaced, and school has been closed for the children for weeks. While we welcome guests to enjoy their time on our beautiful beaches, as area roads continue to open and recovery is underway, we ask our visitors to be patient and mindful of road closures as they travel, and to be respectful of coastal residents dealing with the aftermath of a natural disaster.
Caring in the Community
After the hurricane and subsequent flooding, the local community has shown remarkable kindness for their neighbors. From parents and young students volunteering to shovel sandbags for neighborhoods near the water, to community members and teachers donating and delivering food to families in need, the outpouring of support shows just how we do things in the Carolinas. At Vacation Rentals of North Myrtle Beach, we are proud to assist the outlying areas dealing with flood damage, including helping the local food bank with donations at Barefoot Church, located next to our office, and serving meals to our first responders at the fire station and VFW.
We look forward to seeing y’all again real soon and we thank you for your prayers.
