Quidi Vidi Lake burst its banks Saturday morning after several days of heavy rain.
The boathouse is currently swamped on three sides, and the road on the south side of the lake is underwater.
Scores of St. John's residents took the opportunity to come down to the water and take pictures of the flooding.
Environment Canada issued a rainfall warning this morning, forecasting a further 15-20 millimetres of rain.
The system has already poured between 90 and 110 mm of rain on parts of the Northeast Avalon.
