Horry County Fire Rescue tracks Cameron Village water levels

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Horry County Fire Rescue crews survey each neighborhood road to track water levels in Cameron Village off Highway 707 and Bay Road on Monday night.
 
At that time, the 900 block of Bonita Loop and all of Miromar Way saw the worst flooding. Part of Miromar was under three and a half feet of standing water. HCFR Battalion Chief Brian VaAernem says on Monday crews were called out to this neighborhood alone four times.
 
Neighbors said there are a couple gators that tend to live in one of the ponds in the back of the neighborhood. That pond has flooded. One resident said she saw the two gators in a flooded part of the neighborhood. She wants to warn other residents, especially small children, to keep an eye out on the flood waters. Turtles and fish have also been spotted in the flooded roadways.
 
Some residents have been trapped in their homes for three days now. An HOA board member for the town homes section of the neighborhood says that the disaster has encouraged a sense of comradery in the community.
 
“There’s been a lot of communication going back and forth,” says Bernie Peterson. “What do you need? I’m going out. Can I get you anything. It’s really encouraging to see that. I just hope that carries on here.”
 
Peterson hopes that the neighborhood can learn from the flooding situation and bring concerns to the property manager and builder in order to encourage positive change. He hopes they can assess where the worst flooding and damage was in the neighborhood and brainstorm to see how they can try and prevent this from happening again.
