M5.3 Strikes Near Orkney, South Africa

Centered at 26.986°S, 26.741°E the rare quake struck at a depth of about 10.0km (6.2mi), said USGS/EHP.

The epicenter was located about 125 km (73 miles) southwest of Johannesburg, and 199km (124mi) SW of Pretoria, South Africa. The quake, which killed at least one person, is said to be the largest in the southern Africa region since 2006, when a magnitude 7.0 shock occurred in  Zimbabwe, according to Geological Survey of South Africa.

Induced Seismicity

There is increasing evidence that some earthquakes are  triggered or caused by human activities. Although the area around JHB is not prone to seismicity, it is plagued by the deepest gold mines in the world.
