Hurricane Ian has destroyed at least four piers along South Carolina's coast.
The brunt of the surge and waves from the storm hit Myrtle Beach on Friday.
Police said the Pawley's Island Pier was washed away first. Then local TV footage showed sections missing of the Cherry Grove Pier near North Myrtle Beach and the Apache and Second Avenue piers in Myrtle Beach.
More than 200,000 customers were without power Friday afternoon in South Carolina as Ian moved onshore.
