Mexico City, Sep 8: Heavy rains have flooded hundreds of homes in the Mexico City metropolitan area and turned streets into rivers, officials said.

Officials also said, "The downpour briefly closed Mexico City's airport and swamped four subway stations that were out of operation on Monday, Sep 7."

In the suburb of Tlalnepantla, a water drain broke, knocking down walls and sending cars floating down streets with water 5 feet (1 1/2 meters) deep, they said.

Although heavy rains crippled normal life of people, officials say that it was not enough to fill dams and allow an end to water rationing.
