What was the range of a boat dumping ordinance in those days when we were burying nuclear arsenal in the northern cape? https://foreignpolicy.com/2019/09/22/blast-from-the-past-vela-satellite-israel-nuclear-double-flash-1979-ptbt-south-atlantic-south-africa/
It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

Any geologists care to explain why Koeberg would purposefully be built on a fault line?

Quite strange to hear that only Capies felt it when considering its origin shown on the map, surely the whole southern cape should have experienced it, surely us on the west cost are in an indirect sheltered path, maybe it has to to with terraforma consistency  i.e. we're on solid rock the same as the fault line but maybe there's a sandy cushion between POI and the southern +'eastern coast.

Felt nothing in Klapmuts

I heard it was the first start-up of the new T7 with aftermarket pipe.
