The Myrtle Beach International Airport and all other airports managed by the Horry County Department of Airports remain open and operational. Horry County Government does not have the authority to make a unilateral decision about the closure of airports. That is under the purview of the Federal Aviation Administration. Just like in a hurricane, it is important that the airports remain open for County emergency logistics, including delivery of supplies.

The City of North Myrtle Beach and City of Myrtle Beach have enacted similar ordinances.
