Rainstorm Damage in Toronto still continues

Flooded Train in Toronto, Canada
This is bad news for Torontonians still struggling after Monday's record rainstorm: it's not over yet. Environment Canada warns that another powerful system could move over the area on Tuesday night. The dramatic Twitter and Instagram photos are all over the web showing what the city has been facing so far. It has been past after that heavy rainstorm in Toronto a day and still about 50,000 people are still without power. Toronto is Canada's largest city and it is facing near disaster today.
More than 90mm (3.5in) of water - over a month's average - was dumped on the city late on Monday, officials say.
All major roads and subway stations are flooded due to rainstorm and it has caused traffic chaos all over the place.
Police had to rescue hundreds of passengers who were stranded for several hours on a flooded commuter train.

Water levels on the rush-hour Richmond Hill train rose so high that passengers fled to the upper decks of the coaches.

Utility officials have asked residents to limit their use of electricity as their whole system was under extreme strain.
