The death toll has risen to 21 following severe flooding that has saturated parts of KZN since Monday night.

While South Africans pray for the safety of those affected, residents and witnesses in the area have taken to social media to share the devastating effects of the flood, under the hashtags #DurbanFloods and #KZNFloods.

Take a look at 21 pictures and videos of the devastating Durban flood.

A closer look at the collapsed house in Malvern. Neighbours say three children may still be trapped under the rubble. Rescue workers are expected to return here this morning after working through the night. #DurbanFloods

#DurbanFloods is a reminder of how important it is to ensure your assets. I feel so sorry for some people that will lose homes and cars today. Some of them will most certainly not be insured. That’s sad.
