Pawleys Island pier collapses amid Ian surge
PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The tail end of a pier on Pawleys Island collapsed Friday afternoon and is floating in the water.
The pier took a beating as Hurricane Ian made landfall just south of Georgetown.
As of now, the collapsed portion of the pier is floating away to the south, according to the Pawleys Island Police Department.
6 PM - As Hurricane Ian moves away from us, here’s a look at what’s left of the Pawleys Island pier. People who live out here tell me about half of the pier is gone. Pieces are scattered across the beach here. @Live5News pic.twitter.com/KI2mh0JEOq— Summer Huechtker (@summerhuechtker) September 30, 2022
