A massive thunderstorm caused flash flooding in Toronto, cutting power to 3,00,000 in the city, shutting down subways, and leaving about 1,400 passengers stranded for hours on a commuter train. The storm beat a record set by Hurricane Hazel in 1954 for the most rainfall in a single day, with 126 mm recorded at Pearson Airport.

Environment Canada predicts more thunderstorms for southern Ontario on Wednesday along with hail and strong winds. 

Here are some dramatic photos of the floods that followed torrential rains on Monday.
