In regard to the weekend's rainfall, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

"We continue to assess and monitor the storm and have been in communication with both visitors and local businesses throughout the weekend. The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce has been coordinating with the Horry County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and handling a steady stream of visitor inquiries via telephone, email and social media. The Chamber is assisting visitors with finding accommodations and solidifying their travel plans. The Chamber has also reached out to groups planning meetings, conferences and events in the area over the next few days, providing assistance as needed. A small number of temporary business closures have been reported. We will continue to provide a status update to both local residents and visitors via websites, social media channels, lodging and non-lodging stakeholders and area news outlets.

As weather conditions improve over the next 24 to 48 hours, we anticipate a solid weekend with normal beach-like weather conditions. As this past weekend's storm departs, travel conditions should not prevent anyone from visiting the Myrtle Beach area this coming weekend."
