“Catastrophe in KZN”.. misleading news reporting?

I call bullsh*t.

Everyday i sift through the internets looking for interesting stories i can share with you guys and every now and then a headline comes along that spices up a story a little too much. Hey, even i’ve been known to exaggerate sometimes(does’nt everyone), but this morning i came across this:

“Catastrophe in KZN”

Now when you see the word “catastrophe” what comes to mind. To me i’m thinking nuclear explosion, earthquake, city wide riots or Caprice closing and the like.

Right?

So what really happened.

No disrespect to the trucking/container  industry, but come now people. The article appeared on news24.com’s website. Not what i’d expect from a reputable news source.

Fail.
