Posted: Updated:

Below is a news release from the Horry County Government:

Conway, South Carolina - Horry County has moved to Operating Condition Level 3 (OPCON 3) in preparation of continuous wintry weather over the next 24 hours. OPCON 3 puts Horry County on "Standby" status, as county officials continue to monitor storm activity. Horry County has activated its operational plans and will continue to keep everyone aware of any changes in the forecast and will take appropriate actions when necessary. Horry County has NOT opened its Emergency Operations Center (EOC), but county officials will be monitoring conditions throughout the evening and tomorrow.

Issues throughout the county are iced trees and tree limbs which are falling, causing roads to be blocked and downed power lines. Sporadic power outages are likely overnight and possibly into tomorrow, and residents should contact their local power provider to report any outages. Drivers are urged to use caution due to tree debris and downed power lines. Drivers should also use caution overnight when traveling over overpasses and on bridges.
