HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Curfews have been lifted Monday in the City of Myrtle Beach and Horry County, according to emergency management officials.

The evacuation order for Zone A in Horry County was lifted at 8 a.m. Monday, which includes large sections of Myrtle Beach east of Highway 17 business. 

"Myrtle Beach is again open for your enjoyment," said city spokesman Mark Kruea. He urged drives to drive with care, and to slow down or stop at intersections where the signals are not working. According to the SCDOT, drivers should treat intersections with disabled stop lights as four-way stops.

According to an official at the Horry County Emergency Operations Center, the county's curfew is also lifted for Monday night.

Horry County government offices are closed Monday. Essential personnel should continue to report for duty, according to an update from the county.  Circuit Court jurors for this week have been excused, all Common Pleas & General Sessions Jury trials for this week are postponed. 

Most city facilities in Myrtle Beach are open Monday, according to Kruea. The Base Recreation Center, the Crabtree Memorial Gymnasium, and the Mary C. Canty Recreation Center do not yet have electricity and will re-open to the public as quickly as possible.

Kruea said that while Santee Cooper and other area utilities are working to restore power and other services, this may take several days.

"This continues to be an adventure, and we greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we put things right and get back to normal," Kruea said.
