Myrtle Beach resident Nada Nikolic has faith that God will keep her and her home safe as Hurricane Dorian inches along the South Carolina coastline.

And on Tuesday she enjoyed the beautiful day at the beach she believed God made ahead of the storm’s arrival.

“God is Good. He will help everybody on this Earth, and he knows what he is doing,” she said. “I trust in my God.”

Myrtle Beach was sunny and warm just one day before the hurricane is expected to bring hazardous rain, winds and storm-surge to the area late Wednesday evening into Thursday.

The beach at 65th Ave North was crowded for Tuesday at noon with locals reading, swimming and enjoying the day.
