Hurricanes 

When hurricanes threaten the area, it is imperative that you adhere to the instructions of Seaside Vacations and the local authorities.  When a Hurricane WATCH is issued, you should begin preparations for possible evacuation. Seaside Vacations will monitor the storm along with local authorities and the National Hurricane Center. When the probability of a hit becomes likely, Horry County will issue a MANDATORY EVACUATION. EVACUATION IS REQUIRED WHENEVER A MANDATORY EVACUATION IS ISSUED BY HORRY COUNTY OFFICIALS. You should pack all belongings, including food, and evacuate immediately. Neither Seaside Vacations nor the property owner will be responsible for any items you may leave behind.

Exit the area via the Hurricane Evacuation Routes. Police will direct you to the quickest safe route. Prior to leaving the property, complete the ‘Hurricane Preparation Checklist’ which includes:
•    Tightly lock and secure ALL doors and windows
•    Bring all deck furniture inside and anything which may be blown
•    Set thermostats to OFF position
•    Close all blinds, make sure door is locked behind you and screen door is tightly latched
•    Return keys to office
Your help in completing these items is needed and greatly appreciated by the property owners and Seaside Vacations.  Upon leaving the area, you may either stay at a motel or return home. Keep in mind that the first people to evacuate will get the closest motel room and avoid traffic tie-ups. The longer you wait, the farther you’ll have to travel to find accommodations. After the storm passes, you may call our office or local authorities to see if you can return. If so, we’re glad. Come back and enjoy the rest of your vacation. During periods of evacuation, you may call Seaside Vacations for frequent updates of the storm and important information.
