‘My Story’-Sally, 11, from Korea

I was sleeping and suddenly my bed started to shake. I woke my mum up. My family was frightened. We live with another family so the other family was with us. We lit the candles because the power was out. I had never felt an earthquake this big before. The earthquake scared me. The earthquake effected Christchurch terribly. It destroyed old buildings, damaged many people’s houses and broke water pipes under the ground. Our family was lucky because no one got hurt but many people lost houses and businesses. I learnt what to do in an earthquake and I know I need to be prepared for emergencies. I don’t want to feel another earthquake again.
