MEXICO CITY -- Heavy rains have flooded hundreds of homes in the Mexico City metropolitan area and turned streets into rivers that dragged cars in their currents.

Officials say the downpour briefly closed Mexico City's airport and swamped four subway stations that were out of operation on Monday.

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.

Drought-plagued Mexico City has been begging for rain. Officials say up to 84 millimeters (3.5 inches) fell Sunday, but it was not enough to fill dams and allow an end to water rationing.
