“Get under here”-Angus, 11, Kaiapoi Borough School


4.35 a.m I’m lying in bed just about to go back to sleep when it started shaking. It got

bigger,bigger and bigger!

“Get under here”, yelled my dad.

I ran under the door frame. When it stopped we all got under the bunk. My dad got a torch. We stayed there for a while then went into the kitchen. My nana came down from the backyard. In the morning dad had a look outside. Our street was fine. Dad thought it didn’t affect Kaiapoi. Later on we went for a walk. It wasn’t pretty! When we got power back on we found out that Kaiapoi was on of the worst effected places.
