Toronto rainstorm causes travel chaos and power failure

A heavy rainstorm in Toronto has left some 300,000 people without power and flooded parts of Canada's largest city.

More than 90mm (3.5in) of water - more than a month's average - was dumped on the city late on Monday, officials say.

The rain flooded some major roads and subway stations, causing traffic chaos.
