“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’.”
