A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for the metropolitan Toronto area on Monday evening, amid social media reports that some roads and areas have flooded. Some residents have also lost power.

Citing Environment Canada, The Toronto Star reported that power outages were reported across the city. Currently the thunderstorms are over the Mississauga and Brampton regions.

Some 6,000 people were without power, Toronto Hydro was quoted as saying.

Broadcaster CBC also reported that flooding, transit delays, and power outages were frequent.

Environment Canada said it placed Toronto under a severe thunderstorm warning due to a storm “cluster.”

The Scarborough Rapid Transit Line and most street cars are still operating.

Toronto Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong told the Globe and Mail that numerous lights and street lights were out.

“Various freeways and sections of the Lakeshore are severely flooded,” he said.

Between 1.1 inches and 1.5 inches of rain had fallen in Toronto by 6:15 p.m.

100 mm = 3.94 inches.
