It's not the end of the world, but out on the streets of Toronto, it might seem like it. Thunderstorms, floods, and even the threat of tornadoes are looming over the 6ix on Wednesday, July 8. The tornadoes may not have shown up, but the flash flooding in Toronto definitely did.\nThe biblical weather is definitely keeping Toronto Police Services and City staff busy. There have been several reports of flash flooding even carrying cars away.\nWith the city being under a severe thunderstorm watch and even tornadoes posing a threat, the quick heavy rainfall seemed to take everyone by surprise on Wednesday afternoon.\n"The thunderstorm is near downtown Toronto and stretches west along the lakeshore and may give 50 to 70 millimetres of rain in total. Wind gusts up to 100 kilometres per hour are likely on the west side of Toronto," warned Environment Canada via The Weather Network.\nTPS has shared reports of a couple of alarming incidents already, one involving a canoe.\nIn that same area, reports of a car floating away were also made as police issued warnings of flooding and to steer clear of them, literally.\nAnd photos and videos shared online by residents show the full chaos that's unfolding around the city.\nDavenport near Oakwood (Toronto), right nowIn the foreground, that's water/runoff spouting approx. 6" upwards from a manhole cover#ONStorm pic.twitter.com/9okDu8fR90— Gary Butler (@Butlerewhon) July 8, 2020\nInsane #storm here in Northwest #Toronto.
