Garage floods at Dallas Love Field amid heavy rains, leaves dozens of cars partially submerged
The airport confirmed its lower-level ground transportation area was also flooded, according to a statement obtained by Fox News.
“City staff is attempting to pump the water from the flooded areas,” the statement continued. “Additionally, Aviation and Stormwater Operations staff are assessing the stormwater drainage system that serves the lower areas of the airport to ascertain whether the flooding is being compounded by any obstruction in the stormwater system.”
The number of vehicles submerged at Dallas Love Field’s Garage A is said to be in the dozens, with some being completely submerged, Fox 4 reported.
The outlet added that Garage B also suffered flooding, though the airport’s statement did not confirm damage to Garage B.
Airport guests are encouraged to park in Garage C instead, and to seek out taxis, buses and rental cars on the upper-level roadway.
Airport spokesperson Chris Perry called the flooding “an unfortunate situation,” and encouraged those affected to contact their insurance provider and “file an incident report with the city of Dallas’ Office of Risk Management,” Fox 4 reported.
The airport’s statement confirmed the actual terminal had not been affected thanks to a floodwall system.
A flash flood watch is in effect in for North Texas through Wednesday night, the Associated Press reported. Flood warnings have been issued for Central Texas and other regions, as well.
