Myrtle Beach stormwater workers remove debris ahead of Hurricane Ian

MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina — Myrtle Beach’s stormwater crews spent the day draining drains to prevent road flooding.

All of these measures are designed to mitigate the storm’s possible impact on the Grand Strand.

Additionally, stormwater crews reduced surrounding lakes by two feet earlier this week.

WMBF News was accompanying a group that was clearing out the city’s drains of debris and cleaning them out.

Brandon Salters stated that he has witnessed drainage back up as a result of previous hurricanes and desires to be as prepared as possible.

“During the most recent storm, all the water ran down the manholes and the storm drains, and no water was retained. “All I’m doing is moving the debris and knocking everything to the ground so the river can continue to flow downhill,” Salters remarked.

The city of Myrtle Beach has declared that all public offices would be closed due to the impending storm and its effects.

On Friday, emergency services including police, fire, and public works will continue to function.
