Edinburgh was hit with slot xo nearly half of its average July rainfall in under an hour on Sunday, as storms caused flooding across the city.
Trains were stopped and homes and businesses fought to keep the water out. The newly-opened St James Quarter shopping centre was also affected.
Council flood prevention teams are working with Scottish Water to find blockages and clear surface water.
A yellow warning of rain and a Sepa flood alert remain in place on Monday.
Edinburgh council said up to 37mm of rain had fallen - beyond the capacity of the city's drains and sewerage system.
Councillor Lesley Macinnes, transport and environment convener, said: "Our roads and flood prevention teams have worked extremely hard, throughout Sunday and overnight, to minimise the impact of this intense, sudden downpour.
"No city's drainage systems are designed to cope with the sort of short, sharp volume of water.
"Our sympathies are with anyone who has experienced damage to their property. Officers, along with partners, are working flat-out to make sure the aftermath is cleared as quickly as possible."
Images shared on social media showed a series of flooding incidents.
At a bridge in Chesser, fire crews could be seen moving vehicles stuck in the water. A couple were also pictured stuck at a bus stop on Roseburn Terrace.
Sunday's stormy weather also caused a problem for shoppers in the new St James Quarter, which opened last month.
