There were multiple, late-night water rescues Monday from flash flooding in McKinney, fire officials say.

Four people total were brought to safety in three separate incidents after their cars were swept away from flash flooding Monday night. All who were rescued are fine and no injuries have been reported, according to McKinney's fire chief.

Two people were rescued from flash flooding at McKinney's Towne Lake Park after rising water from Wilson Creek, which feeds into the lake, swept their vehicle off of the road.

As of Tuesday morning, at least one road in McKinney remained closed because of flash flooding - Park View Avenue, beside Towne Lake Park, which runs underneath U.S. 75 and connects the northbound service road to the southbound service road just north of Eldorado Parkway.

Multiple residents have been rescued from flash floodings in McKinney, according to McKinney Fire Department and NBC 5’s Meredith Yeomans.
