The clip has been trending amid the five-day Cape Town winter storm. The storm has kept children out of schools, claimed informal and formal settlements, blown away roofs, flooded homes, and caused major road accidents with slippery, icy snow.

Capetonians have been complaining about the major drop in temperatures, the harsh winds that were strong enough to redirect a waterfall's flow, the intrusive floods, and the unbearably heavy rainfall since Sunday, July 7th.

Netizens were stunned by the results of the unbearably cold weather and gathered in the comments for a brief conversation:

"Ohoo God have mercy for those who don't have homes or shelters."
