Hurricane Update 9/8 8:30pm

Hurricane Irma Update, September 8, 2017, 8:30 p.m.


Friday evening, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster announced that due to the expected path that Hurricane Irma is taking, there will be no evacuation orders given for our area of the state.   He did advise that we should expect increased traffic flow on our roads this weekend as those individuals seeking to escape the hurricane travel northward and away from the storm.   Pinnacle Management will continue to monitor and respond to any possible weather threats to the properties under our management.   Effects from the storm are expected on Monday, into Tuesday.


Horry County officials stated that even though Hurricane Irma’s track has shifted, Horry County Government will closely monitor the storm over the weekend and is in continuous conversations with the National Weather Service and state officials. Horry County remains at OPCON 4 which means that Hurricane Irma still poses a potential threat to Horry County. The Horry County Emergency Operations Center is no longer open at this time. 


With its current track, local meteorologists have advised that Horry County can expect to possibly see wind gusts of 35 MPH (slightly higher on the coast), from one to three inches of rain, a storm surge of one to three feet, minor coastal flooding and rough surf with possible rip currents. There is also an elevated chance of tornadoes late Sunday into early Monday morning.  In anticipation of possible effects on Horry County from the tropical system, the National Weather Service has issued warnings of high rip current risk along Horry County’s beaches. This means that the surf is dangerous to all levels of swimmers.
