The City of Tshwane shared a video on Twitter warning motorists and pedestrians of major flooding at End Street in Centurion. The City shared a 16-second clip of a heavily flooded road and asked locals to avoid low-lying bridges.
The clip resulted in some harsh responses from South Africans who want to know why the City has not done anything to prepare flooding. Saffas seem to share the same sentiment as they are annoyed that they are being warned to watch out for themselves instead of Government putting in the work to avoid such issues.
The video gained a whopping 79 000 views and 737 likes on the bluebird app. Comments of concern and other responses of people making light of the situation are blowing up the replies section:

South Africans want Government to intervene instead of issuing warnings
"Are you ever going to increase the height of that bridge or just enjoy posting this video every time it's raining?"
"Centurion has been always like this for years every time heavy rains come by cars swim... After all these years you are telling me there's no plan? Aowa there's always something you can do... You just don't want to, neh?"
@Ms_Wabo responded with:
"How about fixing it?"
Some Saffas decided to make a few jokes in response to the news
"Owning a boat in Centurion makes a lot of sense."
"I'm getting my friends in Tshwane life jackets for Christmas."
"Every house in Centurion must buy a boat."
Heavy flooding in Germiston can't stop peeps from ordering fast food: "Talk about die-hards"
In other news about heavy rain, Briefly News previously reported that anti-crime activist Yusuf Abramjee kept South Africans informed on the happenings in Germiston with a video of the major flooding.
Abramjee shared a 25-second clip of Germiston Golden Walk Mall, which experienced shin-level flooding. The video pans around the mall and onto a section where customers can be seen sitting on chairs and tables to avoid the flow.
Although the majority of responses to the post were of concern and worry, a number of South Africans made light of the situation as people in the video can be seen trying to order food.
