Upwards of two months worth of rain has fallen in just a few days in a corner of Southwestern Ontario which includes Windsor and Tecumseh.

The normal September rainfall in the region is just under 100 mm with as much as 195 mm falling in some areas this week prompting a state of emergency.

Environment Canada says a strong and slow moving low pressure system brought heavy rain which led to flooding.

More than 1,500 Windsor residents reported basement flooding and many streets were inundated with water leaving vehicles stuck.
