Earthquake hits Cape Town


A 6.2 magnitude earthquake rattled Cape Town on Saturday.

According to the US Geology Survey, the quake hit the city just after 5 pm.

The offshore tremor originated 1,600 kilometres south-east of the country.

A resident at Green Point shared the experience on the Volcano Discovery website.

“Deep bass rumbling and the air felt as if it was vibrating through my chest.

We did not experience objects moving though. Fascinating that the sense of something being wrong was not altogether incorrect.

At first, we wondered if it could be thunder, then an explosion far away, then perhaps a Harley Davidson driving past. Never would have imagined an earth tremor. ”

Some residents posted on Twitter that they felt the faint rumbling which lasted about five seconds.

No casualties or damages have been reported.
