Heavy rain in Toronto overnight caused some flooding on lanes along Lake Shore Boulevard West between Ontario Drive and Remembrance Drive.

As of very early Tuesday morning, two right lanes were blocked – one lane going eastbound and one lane going westbound – due to flooding.

By 8 a.m., Lake Shore Boulevard had fully re-opened.

On Monday at 4:30 p.m. the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority issued a flood and shoreline hazard warning.

The TRCA said that the showers and thunderstorms could deliver rainfall amounts of up to 35 to 45 millimeters within TRCA watersheds.

City crews were on scene all morning cleaning up the water.
