The Rapid Earthquake strikes!!!- Emily, 13, View Hill School

RUMBLE! RUMBLE! GRUMBLE! is the noise i heard as i woke up  with a ferocious jolt from bunk bed confused swaying side to side. I suddenly topple out and hit the ground with a violent bang. I instantly scramble to my feet struggling to keep balance. I suddenly dive for the doorway and hold myself up, not taking a lot of notice of my parents grabbing hold of my younger siblings. I am speechless as the rumbling throws me side to side and hear a large cracking noise. seems to be going on forever but with one big jolt it stops. It was An EARTHQUAKE! I instantly spot a huge crack up the wall nearly 2 metres long. Just when you think it’s all over rapid after shock struck me!
