Flooded Dallas Love Field Airport Garage Ruins Dozens Of Cars

Following heavy rains across Texas, one of the parking garages in the Dallas Love Field airport flooded, leaving dozens of cars under water.

You can imagine how badly people coming out of a plane and discovering that their car is partially or completely submerged must have felt. According to NBC, the lower levels of garages A and B were the worst, with the water fully covering many vehicles.

The Dallas Love Field Airport got 3.3 inches of rain overnight, with crews trying to pump water out of the flooded garages. The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for North Texas through Wednesday night. Parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area received up to 6 inches of rain, with more expected to drop through Wednesday evening.

Officials estimate that at least 30 cars are completely under water, while a spokesman said that the flooding was caused due to a drainage issue offsite. A crew is trying to get the water out, but its level is still rising and there’s a forecast for another full day of rain ahead.

Customers with water damage will have to file a claim with their insurance company, as well as an incident report with the City of Dallas Office of Risk Management.

    Sue the City of Dallas. That’s ridiculous.

      Filing a incident report is not the same as suing

    I have relatives texting and calling to ask if we’re okay. Folks, the news is making a bigger deal out of this than it really is. A couple of years ago we had an abnormal amount of rain and there was pretty significant flooding. That’s not what happened here. This was just a kind of hard rain storm. The cars at Love Field that we’re flooded we’re parked underground in a poorly designed section of the lot.
