DALLAS - Powerful storms barreled through North Texas overnight, causing some damage, flooding and a possible fire.
A FOX 4 viewer shared video of the heavy rain and destructive winds blowing through the Fort Worth suburb of Saginaw. A flash flood watch remains in effect for Tarrant County all day.
Another viewer shared pictures of flooding in West Dallas near Canada Drive and Palacios Avenue, just a block from the Trinity River. The roads were covered with water.
Dallas’ Love Field Airport also experience significant flooding. Dozens of cars are now completely or partially submerged in Garages A & B.
In Lewisville, rescuers in rafts got people out of a mobile home park that began flooding. The Carrollton Fire Department also sent its water rescue team to help.
The area south of Business Highway 121 on the city’s east side frequently has problems in heavy rain. It got about 3 inches of rain overnight.
One building at a large Plano apartment complex caught fire during the height of the storms. Lightning may be to blame.
The complex is at Chase Oaks Boulevard and Legacy Drive on the city’s northeast side. Firefighters called it too dangerous to battle from the inside so they poured water on the flames from ladder trucks.
The apartment management is helping the people displaced by the fire.
