Earlier in the week, a massive storm dumped almost 12 inches of rain in less than hour on Montreal, causing the city’s sewer system to swell. In this amateur video shown on ‘Today,’ a cameraman filmed as a geyser of water blew off a manhole cover and lifted a parked car into the air.

The geyser started slowly at first, lifting the car only inches off the ground. But eventually, a massive torrent of water exploded from the sewer system and hoisted the backend of the vehicle several feet off the ground.

The same storm system also caused a stage to collapse on Sunday during a Cheap Trick performance at the Ottawa Bluesfest.
