A quick, heavy downpour caused waters to rise near Terminal Road and Hardy Street. The waters moved so fast, it flooded several homes, cars and front yards.

Fort Worth Fire was forced to deploy its Swift Water Rescue Team. Firefighters said they had to take one woman to the hospital.

Firefighters said the flood on Wednesday is a good reminder for every neighborhood to be prepared.

Crews are checking a nearby creek to see if debris clogged a drain and caused the flooding on Wednesday.
