MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Horry County Fire Rescue says it had to make three rescues from the Cameron Village neighborhood off of 707 between Sunday night and Monday morning.

The entrance to the Cameron Village neighborhood was blocked off Monday and neighbors were taking to foot to get the supplies they need.

At this point, neighbors say they don't think the neighborhood could handle any more rain.

“It’s literally been terrible. It's been day and night, day and night, non-stop, and we've got probably a good five feet in front of our house,” Marty Priester said.

Roads in Cameron Village, are looking more like rivers. Neighbors have been parking at the entrance off of Highway 707 and walking to their homes or meeting friends and family for rides there.

“It's pretty flooded. It's a couple feet on every street, we were able to take kayaks out, that's the only way people are getting around,” Jessie Poudrier explained.

As Horry County Fire Rescue brought their last rescue to the entrance, who they told WMBF News was a police dispatcher who had to go to work. They said there's been at least three others.

“They said that one woman had to get help to go to work. That was this morning and another one was last night,” Schylar and Mason Plucinski said.

“They had to use a jet ski to get a child out of the house earlier but it didn't go all the way through. So they used kayaks to let them out,” Jessie Poudrier added.

Neighbors say people weren't just being taken to work either.

“He had to go to the hospital, he's actually still in the hospital we just called,” Diane and Marty Priester said.

Neighbors fear it may get worse before it gets better.

“The people who live near the ponds, the ponds are over-flowing and it's in their garages.” “They seem to all be staying inside, some seem to be worried, because around our houses, some are more flooded then others, and most of their yards are taken up by water, Schylar Plucinski said.

Even though some did try to drive through the water, neighbors tell me cars are still stranded in the middle of the streets there and many say they will continue to wait it out until the flooding recedes.
