Flooding in Richmond Hill

Yesterday's heavy rains caused minor flooding in some Richmond Hill neighborhoods. Check out the Sterling Creek subdivision off Harris Trail. The water was two feet deep in places.

City workers actually blocked some streets so the people who live there parked their cars on higher ground and slogged home through the water.

Some tried to drive through, but wound up needing help to get out of the mess.

The sudden, heavy rain hit around high tide.
