Myrtle Beach police asking residents to stay home

Myrtle Beach police have had to close a few ramps off Hwy 17 By-Pass and Grissom Parkway near Highway 31 due to treacherous conditions and cars going off the roadways.

Captain David Knipes says they're seeing more people venturing out thinking the roads are fine and they are not.

In many areas some ice has melted and refrozen, creating slick areas.

If you absolutely must drive, slow down - leave extra space between your car and the one in front of you - and leave plenty of time to get to your destination.
