“I was really scared”- Paris, 8, Queenspark School

On Saturday, 4 September there was an earthquake!  It was at 4:35am.   I got up and stood under a doorframe. I could hear things smashing and everything falling off the wall. After the earthquake stopped, there were lots of aftershocks. Every time there was,  I went under the doorframe.   I was really scared. It was quite big.   It was 7.1.   I was at my nana’s house.   I felt sick and vomited because I was dizzy. I got pushed from wall to wall. Once everything was ok, I went to get my mum and nana from their house. The next day I went for a drive to see all the damage. It was the scariest thing that happened to me.
