The most severe hurricane in Myrtle Beach, Hazel 1954 Oct 05, 1954 to Oct 18, 1954.


The most severe hurricane to strike Mytle Beach dating back to 1900 was Hurricane Hazel. According to Wikipedia, at 15:30 UTC on October 15, 1954 Hazel made landfall just west of the North Carolina/South Carolina border with a 40 mi (64 km) eye, slightly northeast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Based on the pressure, a larger than average size, and the fast forward movement, the landfall intensity was estimated at 130 mph (215 km/h), or a Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

In South Carolina, the storm produced 10–11 ft (3.0–3.4 m) tides along the coast.Hundreds of buildings were destroyed, including about 80% of waterfront dwellings in Myrtle Beach. As a result of the high storm surge, the low-lying sandy barrier islands were completely flooded.Two piers in Myrtle Beach were damaged.

In North Myrtle Beach, a 3-story hotel and a 800 ft (240 m) pier were washed out to sea. At Cherry Grove Beach, 75 residences were demolished, while at Pawleys Island, 40 homes were destroyed, while numerous others were damaged. One death occurred in South Carolina. Damage in the state totaled about $27 million.
