People in Winnipeg are cleaning up after a storm hit the city Sunday morning.
The downpour created flash flooding in some parts of the city, with about 30 millimetres drenching Winnipeg in less than an hour, according to Environment Canada. Some neighbourhoods got as much as 45 millimetres.
The rain and hail caused traffic problems throughout the city, with power outages and downed power lines.
According to Manitoba Hydro 183 customers in the Exchange were left without power because of burnt wires. Just outside Winnipeg another 510 customers in Richer were left in the dark because of a lightning strike outside the station.
Sporadic outages were also reported in Fort Garry, Beausejour, Powerview and Elie.
Beausejour got hit with the heaviest downpour 55 to 70 millimetres of rain.
Sherry Dyck was stuck in her car for about an hour waiting for a tow. Her sedan was under the Disraeli Bridge,on Talbot Avenue, where water rested about halfway up her tires.
"I was playing follow the leader and the car ahead of me made it through no problem, but I guess my car is too little and it just quit," she told CBC News.
She says she didn't even have time to react because she didn't realize the water was so deep.
The portion of road under the bridge had just recently been re-opened, but people in the area said there was always a problem with sitting water there in the past, though they have never seen this high.
Neighbours have put up barricades and are directing traffic around the flooded underpass.
