Dorian puts Jeep to the test on South Carolina beach

It's unknown who left the car or why the car was left abandoned on the beach, but it comes as Hurricane Dorian skirts the state, about 50 miles offshore from Charleston, about two hours south of Myrtle Beach.

Police told local media there wasn't much to be done about removing the Jeep from the sand and rising tide while Dorian was still active.

Dorian, ebbing and flowing in strength, was a Category 2 on the Saffir-Simpson wind scale on Thursday.

It was moving north no faster than a jogger as it skirted the east coast, and was forecast to make landfall in North Carolina late Thursday or early Friday.

Life-threatening storm surges and dangerous winds were possible in much of the coast of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, the National Weather Service said.
