A video is currently doing the rounds on social media of a massive boulder rolling down Table Mountain in Cape Town. Locals reported loud rumbling after the boulder sped down the mountain at the Silverstream Ravine area on Tuesday at around 11am.
“After a careful investigation, it was discovered that this incident was a natural occurrence, however we cannot establish if it will occur again,” said Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) spokesperson Babalwa Dlangamandla.
“The area is open to the public and the investigation has been completed, but we kindly request users to be vigilant when using the Silverstream Ravine area; rock fall and mudslide might take place due to adverse weather condition.”
According to Dlangamandla, the incident should not be of concern to residents. However, mountain users must remain vigilant to their surroundings, especially after the wet weather we have been experiencing.
“We urge mountain users to be vigilant when hiking, especially after adverse weather conditions such as that we experienced recently. Most areas are slippery and dangerous at this stage,” Dlangamandla concluded.
