Pawleys Island closes North and South Causeways ahead of Ian
PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (WMBF) - Pawleys Island has closed both North and South Causeways due to flooding and road hazards.
Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office said the county is already feeling significant effects of Hurricane Ian and residents are encouraged to shelter in place.
Winyah Bay recorded the highest wind gust of 84 mph and Murrells Inlet is experiencing sustained winds of 40-45 mph. Pawleys Island has closed its North and South Causeways because of flooding.
The greatest wind impacts for this area are expected to continue until 4:30 pm.
The National Weather Service issued a Hurricane Warning and Storm Surge Warning for all of the Grand Strand at 11 a.m. Friday.
The city said the roads will not reopen until flood waters have receded.
It is about the predicted high tide now but with the strong winds we may see it a little higher. The wind will prevent the water from fully receding and will effect the next few ride cycles.
