How Toronto will feel the Frankenstorm
You're going to need a sturdy umbrella to survive the next few days in Toronto.
A mega storm system lead by Hurricane Sandy will hit Ontario with rain, wicked winds & in some cases snow.
Environment Canada says the storm will start to blow in late Monday into Tuesday. The worst hit spots could see as much as 75mm of rain over that period. That could include Niagara, Hamilton & Burlington though the agency says the exact location isn't certain yet.
For now, Environment Canada is forecasting 30-50mm in most spots on top of the rain that fell over the weekend.
The storm will also whip up winds of up to 70 km/h late Monday with gusts of up to 100 km/h.
Environment Canada says they could issue rainfall & wind warnings Monday morning.
The Toronto & Region Conservation Authority is keeping an eye out for flooding along streams & rivers.
The Red Cross is asking you to make sure you have an emergency kit ready with enough food, water & supplies to survive for 72 hours should your power go out.
Hurricane Sandy has also forced the cancellation of flights between Toronto & the American east coast.
