The TTC Is Still Majorly Affected By Yesterday's Flash Flood And Here Are All The Routes That Continue To Be Backed Up

There have been both floods and fires on the subway.

Toronto has been hit with a massive rainstorm, and we were hit hard. An entire summer's worth of rain has been dumped on the city and it has caused a lot of damage. Basements were flooded, streets completely washed out, and storm drains burst. 

It's not even over yet. The storm has wreaked havoc on the TTC, stranding thousands of commuters and the delays are still ongoing.

The biggest line hit by the storm was the TTC subway Line 1, from Finch to Union. This morning the TTC tweeted from their official alerts account that there was not only one, but three different problems on the Yonge line. 

First, there was a fire which shut down the track between Bloor and Eglinton. Then there were signal issues on the line at Summerhill and Bloor. And to make matters worse, flooding completely closed the track between Finch and Wilson. 

While the fire issues have since been resolved, the flooding is an ongoing issue and that stretch of subway remains closed and there are still delays between Bloor and Finch due to the unresolved signal issues. 

Commuters caught up in the transit mess shared photos of insanely crowded subway platforms and their experiences on Twitter and it looks awful. 

The TTC is updating the situation through their official Twitter account as the issues are resolved. In the meantime, there are shuttle buses operating in the affected areas.
