Toronto Rainfall Breaks Record High Since 1953
Toronto Rainfall Breaks Record High Since 1953!
Rain, rain go away, is what all the Canadians have been singing this spring as water levels have continued to rise. And so we have been told that April showers bring May flowers, it has been a remarkably wet spring for most Canadians. According to City News, yesterday’s rainfall officially broke the previous record, which was set 64 years ago, in 1953. On May 25, 1953, Toronto saw 34.3 millimetres of rain. This year on Thursday May 25th, 2017, Toronto saw 44.6 millimetres of rainfall through the day. Thanks to all this rainfall and bad weather it has caused many flooding in areas of the city, including the Islands, and has also caused many power outages. The Toronto Island Park is currently closed to the public until at least June 30th, since nearly half of it is under water.
As we are approaching the last week of May, Environment Canada is reporting a chance of rain every day except for Saturday.
Don’t forget your umbrellas!
