NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Crews with the Horry County bomb squad and the North Myrtle Beach Department of Public Safety responded to the Waterway Drive area after workers discovered an unexploded piece of an ordnance, according to a tweet from the City of North Myrtle Beach.

Shortly after 4:30 p.m., North Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue tweeted that all personnel were clear from Waterway Drive and crews from Shaw Air Force Base took possession of the ordnance. The roadway was reopened and there were no further hazards.
