Shelters Opened in Horry County for Those Displaced by Floods

The Red Cross and Horry County officials are opening emergency shelters to aid those displaced by the recent floods. One shelter opened at the Horry County South Strand Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach around 5 p.m. yesterday. However, due to no families arriving by 10:30 p.m., the location moved to stand by status. This means it will remain stocked with supplies and contact information for anyone that comes by. A second location is also open at the James Frazier Center in Conway. The shelters are following Covid-19 safety guidelines by holding health screenings and enforcing mask wearing and social distancing. Families are reminded to bring any medication, specific child items, or other things needed for their stays.
