Folly Beach erosion concern

Local News

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCBD)- Hurricane Michael is expected to bring lots of wind and rain to the Lowcountry. 

Earlier this week, local leaders revealed that roughly 270,000 tons of sand was wiped out by Hurricane Florence. The Army Corps of Engineers stated that sand erosion leaves beach properties vulnerable to storm surge.

For the past months, crews have been working to address the issue by pumping sand onto the shore. The goal is to help preserve the beach and protect residents.
