A shocking video captures the moment a house teeters on the edge of a mountainside after torrential rain washed the foundations away. Weather warnings are currently in place in Durban, South Africa, after the area was hit by one of the worst storms in years.
At least 11 people are reported to have been killed and the death toll is expected to climb as rescue operations continued today.
The footage, which was posted on Twitter, shows one home balanced precariously on wet mud. Most of the foundations appear to have been completely washed away by the downpour. It appears just minutes away from collapse as the rain continues to lash the mountainside.
The caption alongside the tweet reads: “Houses built on mountains are never safe… #DurbanStorm.” Other residents also had their houses destroyed by the torrential downpours.
