What the Toronto floods looked like on Instagram
The great Toronto rain storm of July 2013 left in its wake a localized flooding, widespread power outages, some terrifying moments on a GO Train, and, of course, thousands of photos. As is so often the case nowadays, the the first photos of the storm and subsequent flooding came courtesy of smartphone-wielding commuters, who posted their captures of the event to social media sites as the rain still pounded down â as was the case with our lead photo of a whirlpool on Fleet St. by hooksncrooks. Here's a collection of some of the best images we received under the tag #drenchedTO.
Check out the entire set of stunning images in our Toronto rain storm July 2013 stream.

As you'd expect, there's a bunch of Toronto flood mashups out there. Many of them are recycled from the last year's Union Station flood, but here are a few new ones.
