There was a bit of excitement for the community chat group around Pietermaritzburg after seeing huge dark clouds floating above the KZN capital on Friday afternoon.

Some joked that it was a tornado that “finished us,” while others rushed to close the doors and windows for fear of another storm approaching.

“Why don’t you get hit by a tornado because all the bad things happen here,” the Mountain Rise resident joked.

The driver also shared the above cloud cell phone video taken from N3.

“I don’t know what’s going on, but I want to go home,” she said.

Another person who sounds worried in the car says the clouds are also “turning”.
