MYRTLE BEACH (WGME) -- Conditions continue to deteriorate in downtown Myrtle Beach due to Hurricane Florence.
Officials want to make sure people know that it is not safe to come out and drive in situations like this.
The police department says that it’s only a matter of time before they are going to be off the road, because the situation is getting so bad so quickly.
They're asking people to just stay home and hunker down. Most of this area is without power as well.
The wind is whipping so strong that it's taking down trees and whipping up debris.
The area is now bracing for the storm surge.
