A massive rainstorm that swept through the South of France Wednesday resulted in several evacuations - including a vacationing Rob Lowe and his family.
According to reports, the storm dumped almost three months worth of precipitation in only a matter of hours, raising waters to dangerous levels and forcing first responders into action.
On Instagram, Rob Lowe's son Johnny posted dramatic video of a raging creek-turned-river that submerged the first floor of their vacation home.
For the below photo, Lowe wrote: "This is is right outside the house. Was twice as high at the worst, just before sunrise."
Lowe, 50, also praised first responders in a now-deleted photo of his wife hugging a firefighter.
"My wife being rescued this am (morning) in the horrific flooding in Grasse France. Glad we are safe. Grateful to first responders."
Thank you to the fireman that saved us from this nightmare. Happy for us all to be safe, thoughts to others. pic.twitter.com/NWOdtMsAmj— Johnowen Lowe (@Johnny_L0we) June 25, 2014
