There may be some folk here who are interested to know more about
the cause of Saturday’s 06 February 2016 tremor in Durban!
The Somali Plate is a fault line which stretches from way up in the
rift valley area of Africa and winds its way downwards into South
Africa, passing through parts of Empumalanga and Freestate
provinces before exiting through Pinetown and Durban out into the
Although seismic activity along this fault-line is more dominant up
north (in East Africa) it also results in minor tremors here in the
south – particularly around the Pinetown area. The area to the east
of this faultline is slowly breaking away from the rest of Africa
(about 2cm a year) and will one day form a new continent separate
from the rest of Africa. Don’t worry, we are talking many
thousands of years away if not millions.
