NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Flooding impacted the North Myrtle Beach and other Grand Strand areas on Monday as storms moved through the area.

Flooding could be seen in the area of Main Street in North Myrtle Beach.

Myrtle Beach police said several traffic lights malfunctioned in the city and urged drivers to stay off the roads. The exit ramp from Highway 17 Bypass onto Farrow Parkway also flooded.

Buoys On The Boulevard in North Myrtle Beach announced it was closing for the day due to flooding.

“As usual the lines didn’t drain it out the way it needs to when you get a lot of rain at once and it backs up and it keeps backing up, backing up, backing up until it gets enough weight to purge itself, that’s at least what it looks like each time this happens,” said Weldon Boyd, owner of Buoys on the Boulevard.

Boyd said he hoped to get the restaurant cleaned up and make repairs in order to open Tuesday morning.

“We don’t know what type of water it was, so obviously we take that pretty serious,” he said. “So we are going to close for the day so we can bleach, deep clean and try to fix the exterior walls where people drive by, it tore our walls up,” Boyd said.
