EARTHQUAKE!!! Charlotte, 10, Weedons School

Saturday morning, 4:35am… BANG CRASH It’ an Earthquake! AHHH!!!!!   The lights flickered and the doors slammed, BANG CRASH!  ‘ Get in the boys room’ yelled Dad. Shiver, shiver, crash! “What was that?” “ It was an Earthquake”. “Go outside, its much safer, just keep away from the power lines and maybe cracks in the ground. We waited till the sun shone through our hair.

Dad said we shouldn’t go inside. ALL the phones rang in the morning to check if we were all right.

Mrs. Mallon and her daughter came to our house. She had a cut in her head, they stayed for about 10 minutes because mum’s a doctor and she can help them. Once they had gone we started eating breakfast with the radio running.

A few minutes past and our neighbours came to check on us. We had some chocolate cake that my brother won in the cake raffle. Yum!!!  After that we went to our other neighbour. We didn’t know but the lady was by herself because her husband and son were in Akaroa. They were all ok.

Well that was once in a lifetime experience, and fingers crossed that, that wont happen again.=D
