Train passengers stranded for four hours knee-deep in water after massive floods in Toronto
DRAMATIC photos show stranded passengers knee-deep in water on a commuter train after huge thunderstorm in the Canadian city of Toronto.
The rains flooded roads around Toronto, shutting down the city’s transport system, closed an airport and caught power blackouts that affected hundreds of thousands of people.
During rush-hour last night, the city was deluged with three inches of rain – usually the amount seen in all of July.
The floods trapped passengers on a double-decker commuter train for about four hours until they were rescued by police in boats.
City residents are braced for more damage as the weather forecast is for further rain today.
