NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The city of North Myrtle Beach is aiming to create a living shoreline in an effort to preserve coastal nature for years to come.

In order to do this, the city needs the community’s help.

On Tuesday, the city will host volunteers at the North Myrtle Beach Parks and Sports Complex from 1 to 4 p.m. to build manufactured wire reefs, also known as MWRs. They’re small cages made of wood and wire.

Once oyster shells are added, though, oysters will be attracted to the cages.

Kevin Swain, a wildlife biologist with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, said with time, the MWRs will grow into pillars in the shoreline ecosystem.

“It’ll basically, within a few years, turn into this fully developed oyster reef,” Swain said.

The term “living shoreline” means the barrier protecting a coastline from erosion is made of living organisms, making it a greener, more natural solution. Additionally, living shorelines don’t erode over time like other kinds of barriers.

“That allows any of that sediment that’s being eroded away by that tidal energy to actually build up behind these oyster reefs and allow all of that spartina grass and all that good marsh grass to extend forward and actually take over all that newly available sediment that’s been deposited there,” Swain explained.

Swain said the reefs will not just allow for more plant growth, but they’ll attract wildlife as well, increasing the overall biodiversity in the area. There will be more fish, crustaceans and even microscopic organisms.

That’s not all, though. You may even notice an improvement in the water quality along the reefs.

“Once these are all established and have adult oysters on them, these oysters are actually filtering water to feed. So, you’re getting improved water quality in the site, as well,” Swain said.

He added that an adult oyster can filter several gallons of water each hour.

Lauren Eckersley, a spokesperson for the city of North Myrtle Beach, said they’re simply doing their best to preserve the city’s beautiful nature.

“We observed that nature needed a little bit of help, so we stepped up to do our part,” Eckersley said.

Swain said he expects to have the MWRs in the water sometime next spring or summer. They’ll be placed at the Heritage Shores Nature Preserve in the Cherry Grove area of North Myrtle Beach. The nature preserve includes a public boat ramp.

Additionally, there will be signs alerting boaters and fishers to the oyster reef, advising them not to harvest the oysters. He said the MWRs will be visible during low tide.

Wasting away in Myrtle Beach: Margaritaville plans to build resort downtown

MYRTLE BEACH — All of those tourists covered with oil could soon have a new place to waste away.

Margaritaville, the brand created by the late trop-rock singer Jimmy Buffett, plans to build a resort near the intersection of 17th Avenue North and Withers Drive in Myrtle Beach.

The resort will feature three major buildings, including a main hotel, a 210-foot accommodations tower for parking and check-in, and a 50-foot amenity center with a pool deck and bar/restaurant.

″(It’s) the perfect brand for Myrtle Beach,” Mayor Brenda Bethune said. “The type of clientele that Margaritaville attracts in their other locations is not only the Myrtle Beach visitor, but I think it will bring new visitors here that know who their brand is and want to experience what they have to offer.”

Myrtle Beach News

The hotel will include ballrooms, conference rooms and a Margaritaville gift shop. On the second floor there will be space for additional developments, which could include restaurants, cafes, bakeries, bars, retail shops and other stores, according to city records.

“With a brand like Margaritaville or the other large brands that have been building on our oceanfront in the last five years, they don’t go places that they don’t see promise in the way things are being done and promise for the future,” City Councilman John Krajc said. “Margaritaville putting such a big stamp on Myrtle Beach with the size of hotel that they’re building says a lot about their feelings about our city.”

The resort’s amenity center will be connected to the hotel through a pedestrian bridge over Ocean Boulevard. It will be the second such bridge in the city.

Myrtle Beach’s Community Appearance Board — the panel that reviews building designs and permits — will consider a conceptual building permit application Dec. 7 for the new resort.

Some details about the plan have not yet been revealed, including the cost, the number of beds and the timeline of construction. Bethune said more information would likely be released after the application is approved by the board.

In late September, Myrtle Beach City Council approved general plans for the land parcels that will hold the resort. Although the city confirmed at the time that the hotel was a flagship, they did not reveal which one.

City leaders said the hotel will be slightly different than others along the oceanfront.

While the hotel itself will be on the west side of Ocean Boulevard, the amenities, including the pool deck, will be on the east side, in front of the ocean. Bethune said she was a fan of this element of the plan.

Myrtle Beach Politics

“It takes the investment off Ocean Boulevard and extends it into our second and third row, which is so important and something we’ve been encouraging people to do for years,” she said.

The height of the amenity building will be shorter than the hotel, which city officials said will allow hotel patrons to see over the amenities and out into the ocean. Ken May, the city’s planning and zoning director, said the lower height is also meant to help reduce shadowing on the beach and along Ocean Boulevard.

“I hope this will be a trendsetter,” May said, regarding the design.

The boardwalk will also be extended at least two blocks north to accommodate the development.

Myrtle Beach News

Development Resource Group, which is working with Margaritaville on the project, could not be reached for comment. A Margaritaville representative also could not be reached.

The new resort will join other Margaritaville staples in the city, including LandShark Bar & Grill along the boardwalk and the Margaritaville restaurant at Broadway at the Beach.

These plans come months after a separate Margaritaville resort was announced in February. The Compass Margaritaville resort will be located in the Crescent Beach section of North Myrtle Beach and is expected to have a pool, fitness center, restaurant and 150 rooms.

The two projects will be the only Margaritaville resorts in the Palmetto State.

Margaritaville’s other resorts are in the Bahamas, Belize, California, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Florida, Georgia, Honduras, Louisiana, Mexico, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Tennessee and Texas, according to the company’s website.

Valentine’s Day is coming.

Instead of doing a basic dinner or a movie night, you could try out some of these unique ideas in the Myrtle Beach area, including going on a cruise, renewing your vows or having a romantic picnic on the beach.

The vow renewal package costs $50 for member and $55 for nonmembers. Included is a bouquet or boutonniere, a personalized certificate, and a professional photograph. You can sign up on the website.

Lulu’s in North Myrtle Beach is also offering a vow renewal ceremony. It will be 1 to 3 p.m. Feb. 17, with the ceremony at 2 p.m. It’s recommended to arrive early to pick up your complimentary certificate, flowers and take photos.

After the ceremony, there will be champagne, cake and music. Couples can register on Lulu’s website.

Pontiki Myrtle Beach will offer a 4 p.m. sunset cruise from Feb. 15 through 18 and an afternoon cruise at 1 p.m. on Feb. 17 and 18. Cruises are $70 for adults and $40 for children. That includes all drinks. You can book on the company website.

The party boat company offers tours of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.

For the weekend following Valentine’s Day, the company will be serving champagne on all of its tours to celebrate.

What’s better than surprising your partner with a beautiful picnic along the coast? MB Picnic Co. sets up luxury beach picnics with several options to choose from.

The picnic includes a small table set with plates and silverware, comfortable floor seating options and boho decor. You can talk with the company to work out food options or you can bring your own. When you’re done, MB Picnic Co. will handle the cleanup.

Prices start at $200 for a picnic for two people. You can add on additional services such as a rose stem walkway, heart candle lights or a s’mores kit for an extra cost.

Another vendor option is Holly’s Beach Parties, which offers a romantic night out for $195. This includes a table, floor seating and 12 roses.

Vendors offer suggestions for locations and will try to accommodate special requests. Picnics are available in certain locations based on city regulations and what is allowed on the beach. Some of those locations include Cherry Grove, Myrtle Beach State Park and near Garden City Pier.

Wine and Design, 1620 Farrow Parkway, is hosting two classes on Valentine’s Day. For $75, couples will be able to make a “love birds” resin decoration or paint a starry night sky.

The resin class is 6 to 7:15 p.m. Feb. 14, and the painting class is from 8 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $75 per couple and include the art supplies. You need to bring your own wine, but Wine and Design will provide cups and corkscrews if needed.

It was a time of big hair, bright colors and of course, dancing (with the exception of Footloose). It was the ‘80s and you can relive it, or experience it, through Crooked Hammock Brewery’s ‘80s Prom from 6 to 9 p.m. Valentine’s Day.

The North Myrtle Beach brewery’s event includes a DJ, a dance floor, selection of appetizers, drink tickets, themed photo op and a crowning of a Crooked King and Queen. Tickets are $55 and can be reserved at https://bit.ly/47zOHV8.

Coastline Entertainment is hosting a Valentine’s Day bar crawl on Feb. 14 from 5 to 10 p.m. For $20, a party bus will drive you to four bars where you can drink and find some happy hour specials. It will stop and start at the Tavern in the Forest, 4999 Carolina Forest Blvd.

Although not exclusively for single people, it advertises itself as a place to “Come and find a love match.” You can call Coastline Entertainment at 843-942-9493 to make a reservation.

Myrtle Beach’s seen an uptick in tornadoes recently, but one expert says the area isn’t becoming more prone to them.

While Myrtle Beach has seen two tornadoes in recent months, the Grand Strand has not seen a particular uptick in activity recently, National Weather Service Wilmington, N.C. meteorologist Steven Pfaff said.

Pfaff added that there are a couple of times a year when there is peak tornado activity, particularly between March and May as well as September.

Updated 3 p.m.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for North Myrtle Beach and Little River until 3:45 p.m.

Updated 2:23 p.m.

A tornado warning has been issued Tuesday for the areas of Myrtle Beach, Socastee, Conway and around Garden City until 2:45 p.m., according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

Updated 1:07 p.m.

More than 700 people are without power in the Conway area, according to the Horry Electric Cooperative.

The utility company reported that 767 people lost power a little after noon Tuesday because of wind.

Updated 1 p.m.

Some flooding might be expected in Horry County, but the threat isn’t serious due to the speed of the storm, officials say.

A storm is moving toward the Myrtle Beach area, and flooding could accompany it with heavy weather starting around Tuesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service’s Wilmington, N.C. office.

While flooding might impact areas with poor drainage and beach erosion is a concern, the flooding threat is “on the low end” and isn’t a serious threat because of the storm, said Steven Pfaff, warning coordination meteorologist for the NWS’ Wilmington site.

Updated 11:44 a.m.

A tornado watch has been issued for Horry County until 6 p.m., according to the Horry County Emergency Management.

Wind gusts in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach are at 38 mph, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Updated 10:22 a.m.

The City of Myrtle Beach shores have gone to a double red flag for the remainder of Tuesday, meaning that everyone should remain out of the ocean due to dangerous surf conditions, according to the Myrtle Beach Fire Department.

Updated 10:18 A.M.

Tuesday’s storm is predicted to bring heavy rain, flooding and high winds with gusts up to 55 mph to the Myrtle Beach area, according to the National Weather Service.

That could mean some in Horry County will postpone plans or cancel events in preparation for the severe weather. Check the list of cancellations and closings here.

If you have a cancellation or closing, email online@thesunnews.com.

Updated 10:10 A.M.

HTC announced via an email that their retail locations and their Customer Contact Center were closing at 12:30 p.m. today. Customers can pay their bills online.

“HTC is taking necessary measures to prepare for these conditions by testing and fueling standby generators, inspecting network offices and equipment locations to prevent flooding, preparing fleet vehicles for deployment and other tasks associated with ensuring the safety of network equipment,” wrote the company officials in an email. “HTC will be watching the storm as it moves into our service area and managing our emergency operations center to monitor the network for any alarms.”

A severe thunderstorm is expected to hit the Myrtle Beach area Tuesday, bringing damaging winds, potential flooding and the threat of tornadoes. The National Weather Service said the worst of the storm is expected to hit in the afternoon and evening.

Residents could see bouts of heavy rainfall and wind speeds of more than 55 mph. A total of 1 to 2 inches of rain is predicted, which will bring low levels of flash flooding and a chance of minor coastal flooding.

Many Myrtle Beach area resorts and restaurants live stream their views.

For most of the year, these webcams show tranquil beach scenes for visitors longing for the ocean. When a storm hits, the cameras can turn into tools for locals and tourists alike to witness the effects in real time.

After you identify local emergency contacts and see if your area is likely to flood, check out these 23 beach cams to watch the storm.

As an early winter storm approaches the Myrtle Beach area, there’s a potential for power outages in Horry County.

The National Weather Service’s Wilmington office’s Jan. 8 storm briefing reported that winds could reach 55 mph for land areas and more than 58 mph in marine/coastal areas. The NWS’s report also said tornadoes could develop, putting the threat of wind between “elevated” and “significant.”

The NWS lists increasing threats from none, limited, elevated, significant and extreme.
