Posted by on Thursday, September 29, 2016

Windsor Ontario had a lot of rain to contend with on Thursday and heavy rain with the risk of thunderstorms will continue today.

On Thursday the heavy rain overwhelmed the city's sewer system and caused extensive flooding.

Some residents said that their basements are flooded. Crews had to close some roads due to water build up.

The city is asking residents to hold off on non-flooding related calls until the rain passes.

As of 10 AM EDT on Thursday, Windsor Airport had reported 71 mm of rain. Unofficially there are higher amounts. In fact in Tecumseh one weather station recorded 156 mm of rain.
