PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. – The town of Pawleys Island in coastal South Carolina has been battered Friday by heavy rains and high winds from what was Hurricane Ian.
Ian made its third U.S. landfall just after 2 p.m. Friday about 13 miles southwest of Pawleys Island, near Georgetown, South Carolina, as a Category 1 storm with 85-mph winds.
The Pawleys Island Police Department captured images of the damage caused by the rising waters and fast winds.
Residential areas became flooded as storm surge poured into city streets.

Pawleys Island police were sent out to rescue South Carolinians stranded by the extensive floods.
On the coastline, the end of Pawleys Island pier was washed away and was seen floating south in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
As Hurricane Ian came in, it pushed enough water ashore to flood a home and overtake a road.
By early Friday evening, Ian was moving away. Pawleys Island police said the water was receding but asked residents to remain cautious.
