JUST IN: ‘Earthquake-like’ gas explosion rocks South Africa



South African authorities are concerned there could be a second explosion in Johannesburg’s business district, after one person died and 48 were injured in a large blast on Wednesday.
Videos show a main road split wide open from the force of the explosion, with several vehicles blown onto their side.

It is still unclear what led to the blast, but officials suspect an underground gas pipe is responsible.

Officials have pleaded with the public to stay clear of the area.

The scene at Bree Street is still being treated as a potential risk area – emergency services remain there and people are being evacuated where necessary.
