‘EARTHQUAKE’- Tyler, 11, Weedons School

Saturday 3rd September 4:30 AM

At this time I was in bed dreaming!

Saturday 3rd September 4:35 AM

At this time I was woken by a 7.1 earth quake in the Rolleston region.

Saturday 3rd September 5:00 AM

As the 7.1 died, we all sat in the lounge waiting for the next big one.

Saturday 3rd September 6:30 AM

We make phone calls as the after shocks come and go. We realize how important life is.

Saturday 3rd September 8:00 AM

As the after shocks are coming at speed, we all went to see the rest of the family in town .

Saturday 3rd September 5:30PM

As we arrive home, the power was restored. We moved the mattress into the lounge for the night to come.

Monday 6th September 2:00pm

As time went on there was a wedding to attend.  I was a groomsman. As my sisters wedding went on, there was an after shock which was small. As Mike said, “I do” the crowd clapped. Then it was my turn to sign the forms.
