(The Star Food)

Line 3 subway service was suspended and pedestrian walkways at Union Station closed due to flooding during Friday’s rush-hour following a heavy downpour.TTC spokesperson Hayley Waldman said flooding affected Midland Station, causing the closure of the entire Line 3. Shuttle buses will be in effect, as the TTC resolves the flooding issue.Also, the pathways south of Front St. between Bay and York had to be closed to passengers trying to access the train platforms after heavy rains hit Toronto late Friday afternoon.A Metrolinx’s spokesperson said passengers will have to go through the actual station buildings in order to get to the platforms.“They’re just pedestrian paths. They don’t affect the actual service,” said spokesperson Scott Money.There was no estimate yet on how much damage the flooding has caused.Waldman said other TTC stations were slightly affected by an increase of water, including Islington, Kipling, High Park, Union and Queen, however service had not been disrupted.It’s “service as usual,” she said of those stations. “We’re just trying to clean things up and keep everything flowing.”The northbound ramp of the Don Valley Pkwy. at Dundas St. E. is also closed due to flooding.Environment Canada sent out a warning Friday afternoon to Torontonians to expect flooding in some areas of the city as heavy rain hit the city heading into Friday evening.At the time, rainfall amounts had already risen to 40 mm in parts of eastern Toronto. The agency said people can expect even more torrential rains throughout the night with thunderstorms coming in from the west. The agency says rainfall is forecasted to exceed 50 mm in parts of the city.“Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads,” Environment Canada said. “Heavy rainfall in combination with other weather factors, such as hail, wind and lightning will make outdoor activities unsafe.”Read more:Ev ...
