toronto rain storm

This map shows where Toronto was hit hardest by today's heavy rainstorm

It's no secret that Toronto is still reeling from the massive rainstorm that hit the city incredibly hard earlier today. 

Certain areas were hit harder than others, with intense flooding mostly in the northwest part of the city. 

Now, with a map shared by Chief Communications Officer of Toronto Brad Ross, you can see exactly which areas were hit the hardest. 

The map shows the total amount of rainfall in millimetres in each area, as well as the return period. 

It's estimated that overall, up to 50 mm of rain fell within a few hours.

The rain has caused road closures, traffic delays and TTC shutdowns.

And while the sun may now be shining in Toronto, the Toronto Region and Conservation Authority has issued a flood warning, especially around rivers.

The city is advising citizens to check and clear catch basins to prevent further flooding, and for anyone with basement flooding to call 311.
