Overnight heavy rain caused the Don River to spill its banks, sending water onto parts of the lower end of the Don Valley Parkway in Toronto, May 29, 2013. The highway was closed between Bloor Street and the Gardiner Expressway. At 8 a.m. the waters were receding, leaving mud that made the highway look more like a beach than a roadway.
