The City of North Myrtle Beach announced Sunday morning it is now open for limited re-entry of property owners, and business owners and their identified essential employees. This comes one day after Hurricane Matthew battered the South Carolina coast.
Checkpoints have been established at all entrances to the city, according to the release.
• For property, you will have to show your driver’s license or other formal proof of address (water bill, deed, rental agreement, etc).
• If you own a business but do not live in the city, bring a copy of your business license, or other formal document that ties you to the business.
• Employees of North Myrtle Beach businesses who do not live in the city of North Myrtle Beach will have to show proof of employment as described and promoted prior to the arrival of the hurricane: A letter from your employer on that company’s business letterhead that identifies you by name as being essential to the recovery of that business. Your name as it shows in the letter should match your name as it shows on your driver’s license.
Officials also noted there will be limited access to some locations throughout the city.

The city also said you may put your debris by the road for pickup, but must follow these requirements:
