JERSEY VILLAGE, Texas - Stormy weather hit the Houston area hard Wednesday morning.

Rain water collected on the roads in the early hours, flooding streets in places like Jersey Village.

Nearly one foot of water settled on the lanes of FM 529 near Highway 290 in the early-morning hours.

Drivers approaching Highway 290 slowed into a single-file line to avoid the flooded lanes.

Many cars that attempted to forge through the water ended up stalling in the middle of the road. Trucks towed at least three cars, after drivers attempted to drive through the pooled water on FM 529.
