Morning, I live down here between Glens Bay Road and 17 ByPass, up from Surfside Beach. I stayed for the storm. I can tell you that we got quite a bit of rain here yesterday. The very large pond in back of my house was a foot and a half low when the storm began and is now filled to where it should be and will begin to climb the banks soon. Still has quite a way to go to reach my house so I am not worried, but according to TV we are due for another 7 to 10 inches of rain between now and Sunday evening.

As far as the wind, it was never much of a factor where I am. We had gusts of only 45 mph yesterday. In the morning yesterday there were hardly any winds at all, then they picked up in the afternoon to maybe 25 to 30 mph. This morning not bad at all, wind is light and gusts today are said to be headed to around 30 mph.

From what I have seen on TV there wasn't much of a surge in Surfside Beach and Garden City Beach as the wind was blowing out to sea. Camera shots I have seen on line and TV show Garden City fared pretty well so far. From what I have seen Wacamaw Dr (the street that runs along the ocean) had minimal flooding.

The TV reporters traveling in the beach area are pointing out the damage and it is only things like a light came down or an awning was torn or came down so I don't believe it is too bad down by the beach thus far. But remember the wind has changed direction and is now coming off the ocean and we are due for much more rain. The storm is now a only a Tropical Storm with winds of 50 mph. We just need to get through all the rain now.

For those of you concerned about North Myrtle Beach I have copied and pasted the following from WBTW 13 News: North Myrtle Beach officials say crews have not found any major damage caused by Florence, but more beach erosion is possible. Street flooding in North Myrtle Beach has occurred in the usual spots, but no major damage has been reported by crews accessing the area, officials report.

Regarding Cherry Grove and other low-lying areas of the city, officials say no major flooding has occurred, but because the storm is expected to hover over the area Saturday into Sunday, flooding is still a possibility.

Patrish, hope you have a safe trip back.

Thanks, Bruce1 Glad things are ok so far. I am not a local but I sure appreciate hearing any news about the Surfside/Garden City area...many thanks and hoping the rains will not bring a lot of flooding. Our daughter lives near Raleigh,NC...she says they have had heavy rain and wind...but they are safe so far...only lost power for a while...

Thanks for the update. Big miss by the "experts" which is a good thing. Just hope when a CAT 4 storm may actually come that people don't disregard the warning. Not sure how much a push for ratings plays into these week out forecasts.

"big miss"... while the NHC and the supporting forecasting tools did over-estimate Florence's wind intensity at landfall, they were amazingly accurate on the location and time of landfall (and probably accurate on the insane rainfall amounts). From one week out, they forecasted Florence would hit within 2 hrs of when it actually made landfall, and it was within 10 miles of the forecasted location.... Gotta give credit where it is due, particularly since this was an extremely difficult forecast due to the blocking high pressure. :cool:

Brucee, thanks for you input as a local who saw this through. It is interesting to see this from the viewpoint of a local who is familiar with their local surroundings. Thanks also for updating information rearding the NMB area. ,Please let us know if you're in the Market Common area. Would love to see you again!

We flew into Savannah late Sat night, then drove up to Charleston. As soon as we crossed the state line into SC at 1am Sunday it started raining. Charleston dodged a big bullet and most businesses were open yesterday, with the rest today. We are in a flood zone, but no areas of high water noted. Still breezy (around 20mph), and it is crazy to see the amount of moisture laden clouds screaming towards the NNW to feed into the remains of Florence and drench the inland areas. Feel so sad for everyone in eastern NC affected by the flooding.

But thankful all our MB friends are safe and accounted for !
