Residents areas such as Northcliff, Boksburg, Germiston and Glenvista all reported show they felt the ground shaking. 


The council’s Michelle Grobbelaar says earth tremors are not an unusual phenomenon in the Gauteng area. 


"We have recorded a magnitude frequency of 3,5 in the Boksburg region. This is now automatically located preliminary data, so we are looking at finalising it now and then we will be able to say with certain what time it was. 


“This part of the world has experienced it before, so I wouldn't say one should worry, but if you do feel unsafe stay away from being under something like a table.”
