The perils of parking on the lower level: A much better look at cars completely submerged in Lot A at Love Field. We have seen a pump truck driving into the parking lot but it’s too late for these vehicles. #IAmUp #dfwwx #WFAAWeather pic.twitter.com/Xw4Sm6oD8l— Chris Sadeghi (@chrissadeghi) April 24, 2019
City of Dallas crews were working early Wednesday to pump the water out of the garage.
About 60 flights had been cancelled at the airport, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Storms are expected to continue in north Texas through Wednesday afternoon, according to The Dallas Morning News. The National Weather Service has also issued a flash flood watch for the area.
