Twitter was ablaze after residents took to the social media platform to report that they felt a tremor in and around KZN.

It lasted for less than 40 seconds.

The South African Weather Service has informed the public via Twitter that they should make contact with the Council of Geoscience to alert them about what they experienced.

Residents living as far as uMkomaas on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, Pietermaritzburg, Hillcrest and Durban North have all experienced the tremor. 

It is suspected that the tremor could have been an aftershock from a recent earthquake that hit the island of Mindanao earlier this week. 

The 6.5 magnitude quake less at least six people dead.
