Toronto continues to deal with the aftermath of one of the worst storms in its history and other must read stories...

LOCAL

Phew, talk about dodging a bullet, as the city was expected to receive yet more torrential rain last night. Thankfully, the rain never came, though there still might be more wet stuff later in the week. Unfortunately, as of late Tuesday night, 43,000 Toronto area residents, particularly in Etobicoke, were still without power. [Globe and Mail]

And speaking of troubles in the west-end, area residents are also being forced to contend with a neighbourhood prowler that is responsible for breaking in and entering four homes. According to police, the man responsible for this latest series of home invasions might also have been behind a similar set of crimes in 2012. [Global News]

NATIONAL

Two more bodies were recovered in Lac-Mégantic–bringing the death toll to 15–and police launch a criminal probe into the matter. Although investigators gave few details into the pending investigation, they did hint that they suspect criminal negligence as a potential cause for the devastating locomotive accident. [CBC]

INTERNATIONAL

Toronto wasn’t the only the part of the world to experience issues with excess rain this week, as parts of China have been hit with some of the worst flooding that country has seen in 50 years. As many as 360,000 people are said to be effected by the flooding in the country’s mountainous regions, including 30-40 people that were buried in a landslide. [CBC]

While protests continue in Egypt following the military coup that disposed of former president Mohamed Morsi, the country’s military appointed one of the country’s top judges, Adly Mansour, to the nation’s top democratic post. Additionally, Egypt received $8-billion in aid money from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to help stabilize matters before a planned 2014 election. [CBC]
