Water damages doctor's office off Highway 501 in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Dr. Rodney Arnold took WMBF News reporter Amy Lipman across the intersection of Highway 501 in a Hummer on Sunday to show her the damage the rain has done to his chiropractic office.

The entire parking lot was flooded and so was the inside.

Rooms where Dr. Arnold was recently seeing patients were filled with six inches of water.

He said this has happened several times before and it usually ends up costing him between $12,000 to $15,000 to get it fixed.

Plus, he can't see patients for a week while the repairs go on.

Dr. Arnold said he doesn't understand why the city doesn't do more to prevent flooding in this area.

Highway 501 is still closed off to traffic in the area near the doctor’s office at Balsam Street and Highway 501.

Drivers should not go through this intersection nor should anyone really be driving out here tonight at all.
