Hurricane Ian leaves behind sunshine, minimal damage in Myrtle Beach area



Hurricane Ian brought storm surge, wind and rain to the Myrtle Beach area as it came ashore near Georgetown on Friday, Sept. 30. 

Water crested the dunes along the Grand Strand beaches but quickly receded as the storm passed by the area. The sun was shining in the early evening as conditions rapidly improved. 

The forecast for the coming week includes sunny days with temperatures in the ’70s. Check out our Myrtle Beach webcams for current weather conditions. 

Myrtle Beach Open for Business

Much of the Myrtle Beach area was open for business as usual by Saturday morning. Most Myrtle Beach hotels are open. Vacationers planning to come to the beach in the next few days should double-check with their accommodations. 

Barefoot Landing resumed normal business hours after Hurricane Ian.

Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing resumed normal business hours on Saturday as did most area restaurants and attractions. Tanger Outlets also reopened on Saturday. 

The Myrtle Beach Skywheel reported no damage from the storm and reopened at noon Saturday after completing safety inspections. 

Piers Damaged in Storm

Unfortunately, several area piers sustained damage in the storm.

A large section of the Cherry Grove Pier fell into the ocean as Ian’s waves lashed the structure. The end of the Pawleys Island Pier collapsed during the storm, and the Apache Pier also sustained damage.
