THUNDER BAY -- The city's flood in May has made Environment Canada's list of the top weather stories of the year.


Hundreds of people were impacted by the record rainfall of May 28th that led to extensive flooding. It's a disaster that forced large numbers of people from the homes, and even now work  continues to repair the damage.

Environment Canada has ranked the flooding in Thunder Bay and in other urban communities, such as Montreal and Toronto, as the eighth biggest weather story of the year in Canada.

The weather service says we received over 120-millimetres of rain during the course of the two day storm, with 71-millimetres falling in just six hours. And along with home flooding, the city suffered power outages, road and bridge washouts and some streets and parking lots were turned into small lakes.

Thunder Bay also felt the effects of Environment Canada's biggest weather story of the year, which is the unusually warm weather that Canadians have experienced throughout 2012.
