‘Rumble rumble shake shake’- Katelyn, 10, View Hill School

Saturday morning 4:35am. Rumble rumble shake shake. ‘What is happening’ I thought.

Suddenly Mum and Dad were at the door. BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP the smoke alarm fell down and went off. While Mum picked up the smoke alarm I asked Dad what it was.‘It was an Earthquake’ Dad replied. Dad said it was the biggest Earthquake he had ever felt. During the Earth quake Dad and Mum had friends over. Mum and Dads friends lived at Avonside Drive in Christchurch, and their house had been destroyed. They had to stay at our house an extra night. At our house nothing much happened except for the smoke alarm falling down.
