Update: I’m hearing multiple reports from residents and people who live and work near vantage points for the top of the parking garage who are saying that a contractor had been storing fill dirt in the area that collapsed.

We are still working on the details, but reports are that part of a parking garage at the Renaissance on Turtle Creek at 3225 Turtle Creek Blvd. has collapsed. After viewing a picture of the actual collapse, I can say it looks like several parking spaces just dropped through several levels of the Turtle Creek garage. It appears that fire and police are on the scene, and search and rescue as well as canine search and rescue are on the scene. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that might be affected by this pretty scary looking multi-level collapse, and hope that the only things injured are cars.

From Twitter:

Folks, be careful tonight. I can say for sure that there are so many roads (that you wouldn’t even think would flood) are covered over with water. There are many road closures. Once you get home from work, stay home – there’s more coming and the rain is coming down again after that brief break this afternoon.
