Natural disaster



JUST IN: West Rand rattled by 3.3 magnitude tremor.

The Council for GeoScience in South Africa has confirmed that it recorded an earthquake measuring 3.3 on the Richter Scale, with the tremor taking place early on Tuesday morning in the West Rand in South Africa.

I think it's normal in mining erea's as there is a lot of activities in the area, which may affect the ground and soil. Some illegal miners underground just realigning their earth support structures underground. Maybe it could also be global warming. These days , nothing is for sure and people have not been taking care of the environment so it's reacting to all the poison what people have been adding and it can only get worse.

Luckily this earthquake it did do damage as people and residents were not affected.But I'm worried that one of these days , it's going to be a devastating earthquake that causes a lot of damage and destroys many things.
