‘September earthquake’-Sean, Kaiapoi Borough School

On September the 4th there was a earthquake magnitude 7.1 at 4.38. That night my sister lauren had two friends over, at first I thought it was Lauren and her friends shaking my bed then I turned on my lamp. When I saw everything shaking I knew it was a earthquake, about three seconds later the power went out then it got really violent. The only thing I could hear was the terrifying rumble of the quake. When it was all over dad came into my room while mum went into the girls room. Dad told me that he was running down the hall then when it finished he ended up in the lounge. Our house is all ok in the 7.1.
