South Africa will fare well after the pole shift, due to it's close location to the new equator and high ground. Being relatively remote as an industrialized country, it may also fare well in retaining some of its technology, being used to relying upon itself rather than others. Some electricity will most likely be generated, and road repairs done. Imported food stuffs will stop after the shift, but with an improved climate and distance from volcanoes, some crop growing will succeed. South Africa's largest problem will be during the shift itself, as it lies between the Atlantic and Indian Ocean. During India's subduction, an actual suction will occur there, drawing water. When the Atlantic widens, a similar situation will occur. During the week when rotation stops, the waters of the earth will drift toward the poles, so during the shift will have a tendency to rush to fill the gaps in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Water on the move is unpredictable and forceful, and South Africa will stick out into this maelstrom unprotected. Those wanting to survive the shift should move well inland and return only after water sloshing has stopped, a period of several days, to be safe.
Our statement regarding the grid surviving in South Africa should not come as a surprise. Their main problem will be the sloshing expected along their coastlines and the scouring of water rushing to and fro between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. It also is more than 100 miles from any volcano, and will not be directly downwind from ash after the pole shift. South Africa does not sink or mountain build, nor is it riddled with fault lines. It is, rather, on solid rock, and not the type of rock subject to sinkholes or the type of soil subject to landslides. It is also primarily a rural country, so that agriculture can continue and the greater damage restricted to cities. Thus, beyond the damage that magnitude 9 quakes and hurricane force winds will do, its infrastructure will hold. Electrical grids are poles and wires and substations. Where all are likely to be damaged, they are repairable from inventory items at hand. Thus, our prediction that the grid will be operations, at least to some degree, after the pole shift in South Africa.
That S Africa is a seismically inactive location can be seen from the media reaction to a mere 3.1 in 2003, and a history of a 6.5 as being the "last big one". This is not to minimize or ridicule concerns about a nuclear power plant in the vicinity. As we have stated, these power plants have automatic controls that shut the reactor down at the slightest hint of earthquake. They also have redundant electrical systems, to avoid the possibility of an outage disabling the control. Your concerns during the 7 of 10 roll, which will of course jolt Africa, are thus unwarranted.
