    A month of rain in 4 hours causes chaos in downtown Toronto


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     beechave has lived in Toronto for 25 years and says he has never seen flooding like this before. While driving with his wife to get groceries on July 8, they were forced to abandon the mission and make the circuitous drive home, avoiding flooded intersections and closed roads. When they did arrive safely home, the power was out -- and other residents had moved their cars to avoid the rising water.
    - jccarp, CNN iReport producer

    My wife and I were trying to get home during the flash flood and I managed to capture much of the chaos, including residents on the 2nd floor of a condo using buckets to bail out their apartments.
