A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for the GTA Tuesday, before another quick and fierce round of rainfall drenched the region. Thereafter the warning was downgraded to a thunderstorm watch.

The City of Toronto advised residents to take extra precautions both to protect their property and while travelling.
