Yesterday an anonymous 911 phone caller said that a bomb was set to go off at Wal-Mart at 9:00 p.m.

Horry County Police responded by locating the general location of the call and determining the Carolina Forest area Wal-Mart was the closest. In addition to evacuating that location, the other area locations were alerted. The Seaboard Street Wal-Mart was also evacuated. No bombs were found at any of the locations.  WMBF has some more details. Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact the Horry County Police at 843-915-5350.

We observed a few tweets while the HCPD operation was taking place. See them below.
