‘EARTHQUAKE!’- Micaela, 10, Hororata Primary School

Quickly! Get u p! Get up! My mind was wondering what was happening. I paused for a second to think, then I realised there was an extraordinary shake jolting the house. It was an EARTHQUAKE! I was so petrified, I ran straight to the doorway, I huddled there with Charlotte until it was over. We both sprinted straight under the sturdy table and stayed there for about an hour, just in case there was another earthquake or big after shock. Charlotte grabbed some of the left over pizza and water so we could have a snack. In the end we got out from under the table and started watching T.V. I was still worried there was going to be another earthquake but sooner or later so I decided I’d had to get over it. I hated the earthquake because it shook so much.
