UPDATE: The owner of the sunken supercar has been reportedly identified as Toronto lawyer Howard A. Levitt. He describes how it went down at automotive news site wheels.ca.
Massive thunderstorms hammered Toronto with record rainfall Monday, shutting down the city's transit system and leaving thousands without power.
Social media was packed with reactions, photos and videos of the city's woes. Hospitable folks used Twitter to offer those stranded a place to stay for the night, since many left their cars on flooded highways or downtown streets.
The flood's most popular abandoned vehicle on social media, however, was a pricey silver Ferrari California left in a Toronto underpass. It received some sympathy and plenty of scorn on Twitter after Hira Ahmed snapped a photo of it, saying "Someone left their $300,000 ferrari submerged in sewage water on lower simcoe if anyone's interested.."

While some felt bad for the car's owner, others wondered why he or she drove a Ferrari in a flood in the first place.
