A mini earth tremor has reportedly been experienced in parts of KwaZulu-Natal, with a number of Twitter users saying they felt the earth move at around 11:00 on Saturday.

The tremor is understood to have lasted for four seconds, and was felt from Richards Bay all the way to the Midlands.

"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'."

ER24 tweeted that a 3.1 magnitude earth tremor had hit Durban and surrounding areas.

According to KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Medical Services, no injuries or damage has been reported.

They tweeted that the tremor was felt from iLembe down to Port Shepstone and inland to Pietermaritzburg.
