Houston hammered with heavy rain, leaves motorists stranded

HOUSTON, TX (CNN) - Houston is getting hammered with strong storms and heavy rain.

Flooded streets left hundreds of drivers stranded throughout the area.

Fire crews were called out to rescue frantic drivers--but they couldn't get to everyone because the water was too high in some areas--even for the trucks.

There are unconfirmed reports of wind damage in surrounding areas, possibly caused by tornadoes.
