Trip to Montreal: Don't Park on Manhole

They're predicted torrential thunderstorms in Montreal late Wednesday night or Thursday.

I mention this unimportant factoid because I'm heading there today for a couple days, and found a video that illustrates one reason I need to be careful parking there.

It rained hard in Montreal the other day. The sewers backed up it rained so hard. The owner of a car parked  near the corner of Rue St.  Catherine and Rue Levesque learned why downpours are bad

The storm sewer turned into a gusher. Watch this wild video to see what happened to the car. As for me, I'll park on top of a hill while I'm there. Just in case.
