Toronto’s Union Station shut down due to massive flood of rainwater and possibly sewage
A flood of rainwater and sewage shut down Toronto’s Union Station Friday afternoon, closing the key transit hub for hours and ensuring a nightmare afternoon commute.

TTC Chair Andy Byford was among the first to see the flood.

"I was on a train heading south to Union Station. I looked out the window and you could see water pouring onto the platform."

He is not optimistic that Union will be useable for the afternoon commute.

"We are in the middle of a massive cleanup of the foul water," said Mr. Byford. "I cannot see how this station could possible reopen for rush hour."

The floodwater is “a cross between water and sewage,” confirmed Toronto Fire spokesman Adrian Ratushniak. (Photos: First three photos by Alana McCarthy; fourth Aron Vincent Elkaim/Canadian Press)
