Myrtle Beach Area Wildfire

With regards to the forest fire situation in our area...

North Myrtle Beach (the ocean-side of the Intracoastal Waterway) and our vacation rental properties remain unaffected and our guests are enjoying the warm weather, golf, shopping, and entertainment venues. If you are planning on coming to visit the beach soon, recent events should not interfere.

The containment of the fire is improving and, currently, the weather is calm with a slight breeze from the ocean. The weather is subject to change, of course, but the forecast is just about perfect for visiting.

Below you will find five website links. Two are to local news sites, one is to the North Myrtle Beach Chamber, one is to the Horry County website, and one is to the City of North Myrtle beach. All five, on their home pages, have information regarding the current situation and some even contain maps and videos.

If you are visiting our area in the near future you may wish to pay special attention to road access and temporary road closings. Particularly;

1) Highway 90 (between Conway and North Myrtle Beach) is closed in certain sections.

2) Highway 31 (which parallels the Intracoastal Waterway) is closed from Highway 90 to Grissom Parkway (Myrtle Beach)

3) Highway 22 (between Conway and North Myrtle Beach) is closed between Highway 90 and the Beach

US Highways 9 and 501 into our area, Highway 17 and all other coastal roadways, and Myrtle Beach International Airport, are unaffected at this time. Traffic is typical for this type of year.

True to form, the response from our community of businesses and individuals has been phenomenal. Those that lost homes have been accommodated, we have pulled together, and we continue to reach are out with high spirits while we address the matters at hand.

Please do not hesitate to call or write if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Best regards,
Century 21 Thomas
