Record rainfall in Myrtle Beach gives way to sunshine, blue skies
The Myrtle Beach area is open and ready for visitors following record rainfall associated with an inland storm system and Hurricane Joaquin off the S.C. coast.
Our friends at MyrtleBeach.com visited area beaches Thursday and Friday with a drone to capture video of the blue skies and sunshine. Although rain is in the forecast for Saturday, the rest of the week looks like fantastic beach weather!
Roads closures are not expected to impede beach traffic as the state recovers from the storm. U.S. 17 Business and U.S. 17 Bypass, Highway 501 and Highway 378 are all open. Most major roads leading in and out of the are also open. See the South Carolina Department of Transportation website for current road conditions and closures.
