‘Cricky!’- Abby H, 9, Hororata Primary School

Cricky! Quickly I scrambled down under my bed covers, then Dad exclaimed “Stay in bed kids, it’s an earthquake!”

In seconds Mum dashed down the hall. She sat on my bed till it was over but by the time she got down to my room it was over. I was petrified. Dad went to the kitchen because the heater had come off the wall. He said we had had a lot of damage.
