MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Hurricane Matthew slammed South and North Carolina and continues to cause major damage to people's homes.
The recovery is far from over, but luckily the threat is.

In the height of the storm, our team provided coverage for 21 hours straight.
We have received so many emails and messages thanking us for our coverage.
As a local news organization and broadcaster, this is what we do; we provide information. And it means so much to hear from our viewers.
However, so many others deserve thanks as well. The leadership from South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Horry County leaders, Myrtle Beach leaders, North Myrtle Beach leaders and first responders was exemplary.
Consider This - The constant communication, availability and well-executed plan from everyone got us through the dangerous storm and will get us through the recovery.
