A mini earth tremor has reportedly been experienced in parts of KwaZulu-Natal, with a number of Twitter users saying they felt the earth move at around 11:00 on Saturday.
The tremor is understood to have lasted for four seconds, and was felt from Richards Bay all the way to the Midlands.
“The ground shook for a couple of seconds,” user @RealOBHS tweeted.
@teachernology tweeted: “Wow… just had the house shake.”
@SiyaFuzeSA weighed in: “People won’t take us serious guys if we call it a tremor, we just survived an earthquake bafwethu in Durban, cishe safa!”
But @Piscesboi2016 reckoned it was not that impressive: “lol seriously? My farts are stronger then that ‘earthquake’.”
ER24 tweeted that a 3.1 magnitude earth tremor had hit Durban and surrounding areas. ER24’s Russel Meiring says there may be a possibility of aftershocks.
According to KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Medical Services, no injuries or damage has been reported.
They tweeted that the tremor was felt from iLembe down to Port Shepstone and inland to Pietermaritzburg.
