A large avalanche has destroyed several ski resorts in South Africa.
The avalanche hit in the Mweelrea mountain range, about 130km west of Pretoria.
The region was hit by a previous avalanche on October 19.
The National Disaster Management Authority said that an “earthquake of magnitude 1.5” had struck the mountain range on October 23.
The ski resorts had to be evacuated, with residents evacuated from nearby homes.
More than 70,000 people were evacuated from the region after the avalanche, which caused extensive damage to structures, roads and roads and other infrastructure, the authority said.
The Mweelea mountain region, which covers some 13,000 square kilometres, is part of the Gauteng province and covers the rugged, isolated area of the South African dry-land area known as the Mwa Pongo.
The area has also been affected by flooding in the past.
