”Earthquake, Earthquake”- Adam, 7, Broadfield school

On September 4th there was a 7.1 earthquake. Me and Joseph thought it was an army truck but then we realised it was an earthquake. I fell out of bed, then I got back in. Suddenly Dad came down the hall and shouted ‘Earthquake, Earthquake’. I scrambled to the floor and ran to Mum and Dad’s bed. I was frightened. We stayed there for a long time. I was awake until morning. My Dad hugged me tight. My Mum was shaking with fear. A week later there was a 4.2 aftershock known as an afterwave.
