A car is stuck in water on Ossington Ave. at the CP Rail underpass.
Heavy rain and thunderstorms wreaked havoc on Toronto streets Thursday night, leaving cars stuck in water at several flooded intersections and lengthening the commute for many Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) riders trying to get home.
Subway service was suspended both ways between York Mills and Eglinton stations due to flooding at Lawrence Station, which was to remain closed until the morning, according to the TTC.
Hundreds of people were lining up to catch one of the 28 shuttle buses running between York Mills and Eglinton stations. On social media, commuters were posting photos of the long lines, water on subway tracks, as well as flooding on buses.
A number of other TTC service alerts were issued as well, and they can be seen here
