“Get under your bed! “- Andrew, 9, West Eyreton School

Everything was dark.  I had just woken up from the noise of my bird going mad and mum shouting “Get under your bed! It’s an earthquake!”

But there were draws under our beds. We ran outside onto the patio, too scared to go back into the house in case the swimming pool became a sink hole.  Outside was too cold so we went in the ute until daylight.

It was a 7.1 magnitude on Saturday 4th September 2010 at 4.35am.
