SPRINGFIELD, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say flooding during Labor Day downpours led to some water rescues in a suburban Philadelphia parking lot.

Officials in Delaware County say water began pouring into the parking lot of the BJ's store in Springfield Township from a nearby creek on Monday.

WPVI-TV ( ) says fire crews made an estimated 20 water rescues and nearly 50 cars were affected.

Seven fire companies responded, and officials said some cars were not expected to make it out of the lot, especially those closest to the drain from which the creek water emerged.

Officials say the water finally receded later Monday afternoon and no injuries were reported.
