‘It was freaky!’- Tom, 9, Queenspark School

On Saturday, fourth of September at 4:35am, there was a castrophic earthquake . I thought it was my brother James shaking the house! In the morning there was lots of silt.  We made all the silt into jumps for our bikes.  In my house two glasses fell on the floor and smashed into tiny pieces.  The earthquake was 7.1.  It was from Darfield. When the earthquake happened, my shelves were swaying and I said “Stop it James!”. When I found out it was not my brother, I got out of my room and got down.  It was freaky!
