'Ground not stable near Stilfontein Clinic'

Obviously the ground is not very stable where the Stilfontein Clinic is situated.

I stayed in the flats that use to be next to this same clinic and collapsed with the quake on 5 Marched 2014 and were eventually demolished.

We lost most of our belongings including our flat we were staying in.

Now again 9 years later the clinic walls are torn apart which use to be next to our flats.

Yesterday's experience brought up horrible memories with more damage and I can't stop wondering if the mining activity plays a big role in these two earth quakes including this one on 5 August 2014 and if Stilfontein would be so lucky to survive another quake with all the structural damage already caused by the quakes and mining activities.

I am definitely moving out of this area!

It is extremely unlikely that yesterday's earthquake was caused by mining activity. Mining activity is so small in comparison to the larger bulk of the Earth. A 5.5 magnitude earthquake is seismic event which is not caused by mining. There are 500,000 earthquakes recorded every year and they occur all over the world.
