A slow-moving rainstorm late Tuesday night produced between 70 and 110 millimetres of rain causing localized flooding in several neighbourhoods across Toronto.

Streets and low-lying areas were affected by the heavy downpour as multiple vehicles and even streetcars had to be abandoned as they got stuck in the rising water.
