Rob Lowe - Rob Lowe rescued from floods

Rob Lowe and his family have been rescued from floods by emergency services.

The 'Parks and Recreation' star has been vacationing in Grasse, France with wife Sheryl Berkoff and son Johnny, 18, and their idyllic break took a nightmare turn when torrential storms struck overnight.

Posting images from the property on Instagram, Rob wrote:

''This is right outside the house. Was twice as high at the worst, just before sunrise.''

His son also posted a video on the site, adding: ''That's the first floor of our house submerged. Scariest hour or so of my life.''

According to local residents, as much rain fell in four hours that usually falls in four months, causing mudslides, road washouts and power disruption, but thankfully emergency services were on hand to help those stranded and Rob and his family paid tribute to their rescuers.

Johnny tweeted: ''Thank you to the fireman that saved us from this nightmare. Happy for us all to be safe, thoughts to others.''

In a picture that has now been removed from Instagram of Cheryl hugging a fireman, the 50-year-old actor wrote: ''My wife being rescued this am in the horrific flooding in Grasse France. Glad we are safe. Grateful to first responders.''

The former 'West Wing' star wasn't the only person in the area to need help.

One rescue official told People: ''This was the biggest storm of the year. Water rising like that can be terrifying. There's only one rescue station in Grasse, and this storm required assistance from several other regional units. We were called out on a lot of emergency rescues yesterday.''
