My niece and I are currently at Myrtle Beach. We arrived Saturday and she began with severe stomach cramping monday morning and I began with the cramping, vomiting, and diarrhea Monday night. Our entire family has eaten the same foods and so far we are the only two sick. Im thinking its the water in the ocean.
