A month’s worth of rain fell in Toronto in just a few hours yesterday with a whopping 126 mm recorded at Pearson Airport.

A rush hour train became stranded on its tracks with water up to its windows prompting an emergency rescue of more than 1400 passengers.

Some motorists also became stranded in their vehicles by rushing floodwaters.

Almost 500,000 lost power during the torrential downpour.
