‘BOOM!’- Tayler, 10, St Patrick’s School

I was dreaming a good dream when suddenly my bed started shaking then my house started shaking. I ran into my nana and pops room the lights were flickering on and off. I ACCIDENTALLY ran into the chimney. We heard a bang we thought the water cylinder was falling of the roof we were lucky that it wasn’t. When it finally stopped we ran downstairs where mum was. We all sat on the couch then twenty minutes later BOOM ! another one aftershocks carry on days go on and on were trying to get back to the normality of our lives but hey nothing will be the same lots of old historic buildings have either collapsed or been knocked down but hey at least nobody died.

    Dear Tayler

    Sorry to hear about the earthquake it must have been scary. Hope you and your family are alright. It must be annoying having loads of aftershocks every day. Our school had a day so that we could support the Christchurch Earhquake. Hope you are ok. Lots of people are caring for you here.
