Residents in Sicily Park became concerned their houses were at risk after pockets of floodwater collected in dips along the road on Friday afternoon.
A fire engine was called to the scene at around 4.45pm and drained the water away.
There have also been reports of bad flooding on the Upper Springfield Road.
Meanwhile driving conditions on the main road between Carryduff and Ballynahinch are said to be treacherous due to surface water.
Heavy downpours have battered Northern Ireland throughout the day.
Forecasters at the Met Office expect the showers to ease overnight and for Saturday to be generally drier and brighter.
However the MP for South Belfast says flooding is a "consistent problem" in the area and wants to see something done.
"The flooding is so bad this evening that a fire engine has had to be deployed to pump water out of the street," Dr Alasdair McDonnell said.
"This is totally unacceptable especially since this is not the first time this has happened.
"I have contacted NI Water this evening to request an urgent meeting to address the ongoing flooding problems."
The Fire Service says it has not had any further call outs on Friday.
