Beach Houses in Myrtle Beach

Beach houses in Myrtle BeachOur hurricane season in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, runs from June through November every year. In this area, August and September are the peak months for hurricanes. If you are planning a vacation during this time of the year, you should prepare yourself before arriving at our Beach houses in Myrtle Beach. This article provides tips and advice on how to weather any storm the tropics might throw at you while you are here enjoying your vacation.

Vacationers should not be deterred from coming to the Myrtle Beach area during the hurricane season. Summer deals along the Grand Strand are super. Autumn in coastal South Carolina provides vacationers with dropping rates to accompany falling temperatures and humidity.

If you are unlucky enough to be right in the middle of your vacation when a hurricane takes aim at the coast of the Carolinas, don't worry. Unlike an unexpected afternoon thunderstorm, hurricanes do not sneak up on the South Carolina coast. This gives us all plenty of time to leave before the situation gets worse.

The best piece of advice is to keep an eye on the extended Myrtle Beach weather forecast when you’re here. If a hurricane approaches during your trip, don't panic. As soon as it looks like you may need to abandon your Beach houses in Myrtle Beach, follow these steps.
    •    Watch the local weather station and follow their advice.
    •    Check on earlier flights and plant to arrive earlier at the airport.
    •    Fill your car with a full tank of gas at the first sign of hurricane.
    •    Map out evacuation routes before you leave.
    •    Pack water and food in case of traffic jams when driving.
    •    Don't wait until the last minute to evacuate. Go early.
