NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The City of North Myrtle Beach experienced a historic rain-event on July 22, 2022. More than eight-inches of rain fell in a 24-hour period. This was one of the top five rainfall events in North Myrtle Beach in the past 20 years.

This morning, city leaders from Public Works, Administration, Fire, and Police investigated some of the areas hit hardest by the historic rainfall.

City Manager, Mike Mahaney, met with flood victims and pledged to find out if there are ways the City can help mitigate some of rainfall drainage issues about which citizens say they are concerned.

One neighborhood, Robber’s Roost Villas, along with other neighborhoods in Surf Estates and the Cherry Grove area experienced major ponding in their yards and flooding inside their homes.

The drainage system near Robber’s Roost Villas was designed by a professional engineer on behalf of the developer of the property. The City met with representatives from the adjacent new development near Robber’s Roost who committed to adjusting their on-site stormwater maintenance devices to minimize the impact on existing developments. In addition, they indicated they are willing to work with Robber’s Roost Villas to incorporate improvements that would enable the two private drainage systems to operate more efficiently.
