Rob Lowe's European holiday in the South of France took an unexpected turn!
The actor and his family had to be evacuated from their vacation house in Grasse, France after a violent storm submerged the entire first floor of their residence in floodwaters. According to reports, three months' worth of rain fell in less than four hours.
The West Wing star shared a pic on Instagram of the raging water. "This is right outside the house. Was twice as high at the worst, just before sunrise," he wrote.
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
The 50-year-old's son John Owen Lowe also posted about the scary incident. "Thank you to the fireman that saved us from this nightmare. Happy for us all to be safe, thoughts to others," he tweeted.
Glad to hear everyone is safe and sound!
