‘Earthquake Disaster’- Tyson, 11, Weedons School

Saturday 4th September, I was at my friend’s house, his name is Edward. We got woken up at 4.35am. The house was shaking, the windows were breaking and the house was creaking.

Eddie and I ran to the doorway, we were shaking with fright.  We checked everyone was all right.  Eddie’s mum came to calm us down, everyone was fine. Then we got a mattress and sat on it in the doorway by the bedroom we were sleeping in. We waited until daylight then we heard that we just had a 7.1 earthquake.

We had a look at the house, there were cracks in the walls and all the bricks fell off the roof. Eddie’s dad went around all the houses to see if they were all right. I hope it ends quite quickly because we are lucky to be alive. The after shocks are still going on today.
