Earthquake in Boksburg (Johannesburg), South Africa

South Africa has often weak to moderate earthquakes but we have a hard time to retrieve data from it. International agencies are not reporting the data but people are mentioning what they have felt in our site.
The site of is dead since a long time and even the proposed links are not working or are overdue too. A pity. A population should be informed swiftly about earthquakes.

- Earthquake Report

SAWDOS - Now this is what the SAWDOS has been talking about all along. No free information on earthquakes in South Africa. Rather working together Geoscience has opted to go the subscription route. Thanks to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), amateur sceismic observers and SAWDOS social media South Africans can still get earthquake information free of charge. This is really crazy but unfortunately the current situation in South Africa.
