toronto flooding

Part of Leslieville is now under water

Even though it's hot and sunny outside today, the water levels in Lake Ontario keep on rising.

The Toronto Islands are expected to be closed to the public until at least June 30 and other places across the city have also been affected by the heavy rainfall from earlier this season.

As of earlier this afternoon, some sidewalks were closed and traffic was building up, but the street wasn't shut down, so cars were just driving on through the water.
