Hurricane Dorian strengthened overnight from a Category 2 storm to a Category 3 storm. The Myrtle Beach area started feeling the impact of Hurricane Dorian on the evening of Wednesday 9/4. Hurricane force winds are expected to be in the area through late Thursday as the eye of the storm moves closer to the coastline of the Grand Strand. Several tornadoes did touch down in the area in the early morning hours of Thursday, 9/5. Tornadoes were spotted in Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Little River, Socastee, and Conway. We expect tornadoes to continue to be a big threat to the area all day. Dangerous storm surge is expected on Thursday that could cause severe flooding.
