NEW! Hey, y'all! I added 3 new cams today: 1. SOS Roofing 2. Garden City (near Gulfstream Cafe) 3. Clark's Seafood & Chophouse in Little River. You're welcome. ...lo and behold...they are all working. I'm currently checking them to see if I screwed up on the source placement. (I work with a terribly outdated web program and one day I'll probably throw my arms up in the air, scream, and ask to be put away in the Old Folk's Home! In the meantime - stay tuned! :-)
12/20 - Thanks so much to Sterling Chatterton for the newest addition to our webcam page! Captain's Quarters, Crown Reef, Ocean Creek - view them with ibly one click! (I know we already have Ocean Reef and Ocean Creek), but I'm leaving them in their previous locations too!
12/18 Thanks, Michael Goodwin for letting me know the Springmaid and Wonderworks cams are working again!
12/17 - We have had several outages….
RipTydz link WAS NOT WORKING, then I discovered a new URL yesterday. The correct link is on the cam listings, but I noticed just before I went to bed last night this link also had an outage - again. This is the link I have:
2020 Social Distancing Enforcement Drones Arrive in the U.S :-)
By Adam K. Raymond In late January 2020, a viral video from China showed people who’d wandered outside in the early days of the coronavirus outbreak getting scolded by a disembodied voice from a drone flying overhead. Now, self-righteous flying robots have made their way to the U.S., with at least two American police departments deploying drones to tell people to disperse, go home, and stay there. Mayor Chris Bollwage, Elizabeth, N.J.
Cam problems I discovered that Riptydz has resurfaced at a new link. It was working for about 20 minutes, but when I checked it later, it's not working again. Murrells Inlet has also been off-line. The other 3 are below.

Enjoying the Ripley Aquarium Penguin Cam above? If so, you're going to love Joey the Sea Otter's cam! Joey is an orphaned sea otter pup that was rescued by the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre on July 3, 2020. You can watch his progress now. He's in rehabilitation while he grows up and learns how to be a sea otter.
* Thanks to Michael G. for letting me know that both Surfside and Bermuda Sand are working again.
* Thanks to George for the heads-up "Beautiful Atlantic" and Crown Reef, ALWAYS appreciate all y'all for helping out. So much of the success here is due is due to y'all webcam fans!
*Garden City beach cam - Thanks to Doug for letting me know about the outage. I called WPDE and after listening to choices 1 through 8. ("8 is not working." Really??? ) I tried again and this time I opted to leave a message...along with my name and number. I'll let you know of I hear from them. The SkyCam for Doubletree was not working either. If you can't send an e-mail, give them a call (the squeaky-wheel) at 843-487-3001.
* Dead Dog Saloon's bar/saloon-cam is still out of order although the other two are working. I called again today (8/20) and was told they are working on it.
* NEW! Local drone around Myrtle Beach! Here's Garden City Beach! Drone video by Robbie Bischoff July 4, 2020.
Thanks so much to Sterling Catterton for discovering and reporting the link to Ripley's Aquarium (above) featuring their new Penguin webcam! Please remember, they turn out the lights around 8 P.M. so these sweet penguins can get their rest!
Suggestions? Additions? Mistakes? Tell me what you think...thanks, y'all!
South Carolina inmate in jail: "Must have used drones in a prison escape..." Read about it here!
S.C. prisons go high-tech to ground contraband deliveries by drones. Call it the drone war. And South Carolina's prisons are fighting it with state-of-the-art technology.Drones drop tools used for daring prison breaks. They bring drugs and cell phones to inmates waiting in the creation yards. They can ignite riots from prisoners scrambling to grab special deliveries..
Featured Drones - All over South Carolina, drones are becoming quite popular. Ft.Sumter, Military drones that are used to find and kill terrorists overseas are being piloted in South Carolina and a permanent headquarters for the operation will be in the works soon. If you come across any drone links you think would be a good addition to this page, please send me the link!
Not local, but this made me smile! Talk about the tail wagging the dog....One resourceful man in Cyprus used a drone to walk his dog while on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Thepooch seemed happy, trotting through the empty streets of Limassol on Cyprus’ southeast coast.
From Scott Krause: Cargo Ship capsizes of the coast of Georgia. The Golden Ray "Roll on Roll off" cargo shop capsized in the St. Simon Sound in Brunswick, Georiga. She was built in 2017and it is the length of two football fields. Her gross tonnage comes in at a whopping 71,178 tons, and she is carrying 4,000 Hyundai and Kia vehicles that were to arrive in Baltimore. All 42 crew members were rescued, the last 4 just before this was shot. ©Scott Krause Aerials. View all Scott Krause's amazing Web Cams

You are likely aware that there are many uses for drones other than video production, but you may be surprised how many and how varied the uses are. And the number is growing fast. In fact, according to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), optimal integration of drones in the U.S. will result in the creation of about 100,000 jobs and an effect of $82 billion on the economy by 2025, not all of which will be in the film industry. The following list of 10 uses for drones, picked at random from a variety of choices.. New uses for drones
In light of the OD Pavilion outage, I'll tell you a story that dates back afew years. My neighbor and I drove up to NMB to hear the Shakers...probably the biggest act of the season at the Horseshoe. Early in the season, North Myrtle Beach experienced a lot of flooding. It was decided that the new drains would be the answer to avoid this problem. Throughout speing and summer, residents were forced to avoid that area of the beach due to detours and roadblocks. Finally we thought it was fixed, but them my eighbor and I were told it had been called off due to heavy winds and storms. There were actually people in kayaks paddling down Main Street! We left the car where we parked it and walked about the area. I took these photos of North Myrtle Beach as it should NOT have looked that night!

I thought y'all might get a kick out of this. I was standing at the first pole you'll see at the Oceanfront Bar & Grill cam. I said to Wally, "I wonder if any of the webcam fans are watching right now?" He says "If they were, they wouldn't know you anyhow!" So he took this photo! Hugs to all y'all cam fans from the Net Nanny! ;-)
Here's a presentation put together by the Smithsonian Channel featuring Myrtle Beach. It is not a webcam, but it's better than some cams I'll leave unmentioned. (Cough cough.)
Not a webcam, but it will make you smile. Cooter Douglas talks about a new pier
