Got a tweet saying Little River got hit hard..

And, I heard there was no evacuation for this storm.

If any locals that have storm info, post here please.

 

Thanks jw11

I'm 5 miles north of Little River - got 3 inches of rain and a few limbs down. Never saw the wind since it came around 1 am. Obviously the "experts" didn't expect the storm to be big as they never called for evacuation

Live in Little River it’s a beautiful morning here today. 3 to 5 inches of rain highest wind gust I saw on the news was 53 mph. Cherry Grove on the other hand got pounded. The intersection at Rt 9 and Duffy St looked like a River. Part of the newer pier was washed out.

Thanks guys.

 

@Metric... to clarify... was it the Cherry Grove pier that got damaged ?

Or did they build a new pier near rt9 ?

@jw11 there’s two piers in Cherry Grove. The old one is on 35th ave. The newer one is farther north on @ 60th ave N. A section of the new pier was washed away.

Hope that everyone is OK.  I imagine that Aberdeen will be flooded again.

Arcadian Shores area escaped the brunt of it. Just heavy rain/winds but no flooding from what I've seen. South of us may have some issues and I can't speak to southern NC.

At this time Aberdeen is not flooded - might be an issue in a few days as the water comes down from the north, but probably not

@say8pet

It is really good news for AS and the sector around. I am thinking of Myrtle Beach Travel Park in particular and all his residents.

Good pic of the damaged Pier, hopefully this will be your last storm.
