Screams Of Terror
By Mariella 5D
The Sydney Earthquake 19th of May 2007
The Normal Thusrday Before
During This Terrible Disaster
Walking outside to see what had happened to our beautiful city
After the earthquake we walked outside after the earthquake stopped... seeing our beautiful city, now destroyed. We saw a massive crack down the middle off our street which the earthquake had caused and lots of buildings and many homes that now were destroyed. Later we learnt that this 8.9 earthquake killed 3009 people and thousands were injured. The Harbour Bridge had some of it metal bars snapped and was now leaning to the side and was unable to cross over, so now people had to find other ways to get across the harbour. Also one of the Opera Houses sails had snapped off and landed in the Harbour water. It was estimated 22 million dollars in repairs to fix all this damage and guess what this horrible earthquake could be felt over 200 km away!
Some Interviews I Had Were
Kevin Rudd (Prime Minister at the time) - this damage was terrific to our beautiful city Sydney, I am going to do my best to help repair as much as we can.
Amia Bardsley - was lying in bed when her pet dog came running in barking and hid under her bed. Then later she looked out her window and was mortified to see all the destruction that was caused.
Cierra Saab - was lying in bed when all of a sudden her bed ripped apart. When Cierra realised what was happening she quickly hid under her desk. When she walked outside she saw all the damage it had caused, she describes it as horrific.
