‘Ready, set, go!!’-Renee, 8, Hororata Primary School

At first I thought that someone was shaking my bed. Mum called out for me and said earthquake!! Quickly I shot out my hand to really quickly grab my torch so I could see. I helped Mum get Simon and Toby. Dad was following us out to the kitchen. I said should we get some blankets? When it was nearly finished, ready, set, go!! It was a race against time to get everything we needed. For the rest of the night we slept under the table. Dad stayed on the couch. He was listening to the news on his phone.
