Ian made landfall yesterday, Sept. 30th as a Category 1 storm with 7 foot storm surge. Area cleanup began in earnest today for the Grand Strand.
The Grand Strand encompasses an area from Little River, South Carolina to Georgetown, S.C.
The eye of the storm made landfall in Georgetown. The cities of Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Garden City, and Pawleys Island caught the brunt of the storm surge from Hurricane Ian.
The area lost four oceanfront piers from Cherry Grove down south to Pawleys Island.
