JOHANNESBURG - Another tremor was felt in parts of Gauteng last night, the second in recent weeks.

Reports indicate that the tremor was also felt as far as Modimolle in Limpopo.

The Council for Geoscience's Michelle Grobbelaar said the tremor is being investigated.

"We are downloading data and starting to analyse it so we can get a location and a magnitude."

On 18 November, a magnitude four tremor shook large parts of Johannesburg.

It is unclear what caused the tremor which was felt in areas including Emmarentia, Northcliff, Kempton Park, Westgate and parts of Soweto.

Social networks were flooded with a few shocking accounts and also some humourous explanations for last night's tremor:

Was that a tremor in Fourways? My house vibrated for about 5 -7 seconds, windows, walls, floor shook #joburg #tremor

This #tremor was definitely worse than the previous one.... A sign of things to come? Ominous

Jus felt another #tremor in Jhb. This is becoming scary..

Guys, relax it was not an earthquake. It was just JZ Khulubuse playing waterpolo in their #nkandla pool #tremor

Before/after photo of my room after the #tremor hit Pretoria. Devastating!

Mother Nature does not support #eTolls. #Tremor reported in a lot of Gauteng tonight.
