Rob Lowe and his family were forced to evacuate their vacation home in Grasse, France on Wednesday when scary floods hit the region.

In fact, after the entire first floor became submerged under water, the family had to be rescued from the house by a local fireman.

The actor and his son Johnny took to social media to document the ordeal.

Lowe posted a photo of the flooding on Instagram, captioning it, “This is is right outside the house. Was twice as high at the worst, just before sunrise.”

Johnny shared a video of the rushing water, writing, “That’s the first floor of our house submerged. Scariest hour or so of my life, also sorry for the explicit language. #theboyssurviveaflood.”

He later tweeted, “Thank you to the fireman that saved us from this nightmare. Happy for us all to be safe, thoughts to others.”

That area in France received the equivalent of three months of rainfall in fewer than four hours.
