Production on rapper Common's gritty western Tv series Hell On Wheels has been shut down after torrential rainfall left the set underwater at the weekend (22-23Jun13).

Flooding has caused chaos throughout Calgary, Canada and filming on the Tv drama, which is shot in the province, has been halted until the weather improves.

Common and co-star Anson Mount were shooting scenes for season three of the show last week (ends21Jun13) when the storms hit and production was shut down.

Mount has posted photos of the waterlogged set on his account.
