JOHANNESBURG - Parts of western and southern Joburg have been shaken by an early morning seismic tremor.
It's accepted that the focal point of the 3.3 greatness quake was situated among Carletonville and Westonaria.
The shudder was felt by occupants as distant as the Vaal at around 6:30am.
The Council for Geoscience's central researcher Eldridge Kgaswane: "Assuming we get tremors past a nearby size of 4 that ought to be a reason for concern on the grounds that as indicated by all accounts you're really beginning to go into gigantic extent scales."
Kgaswane said that the most recent seismic tremor was probable connected with neighboring mining movement.
"It is objective to say that it very well may be mining related. It's not satisfactory concerning what sort of mining action might have caused this on the off chance that it is mining-related," Kgaswane said.
Earth quakes in Gauteng are generally brought about by mining exercises rather than a change in structural plates.
