Another flash storm hit Toronto Monday afternoon, causing streets to flood in the downtown core.

The storm, which appeared to last under ten minutes, followed an Environment Canada severe thunderstorm warning issued today.

According to Environment Canada, the storm would hit Toronto as a cold front moves in from the northwest, potentially bringing damaging wind gusts of 100 km/h and torrential downpours.

And that’s exactly what happened during the brief yet powerful storm.

In case you missed today’s rainstorm, here are some shots shared on social media.
