AN EARTHQUAKE HAS HIT
WHEN AND WHERE
Monday, June 18th, 8am
My 1st Experience
We got back to my Grandparents house at around 9:45pm I was extremely tried so I called it a night and passed out on my bed.
My 2nd Experience
A few minutes later at 8:00 am, there is intense shaking. Barely awake I get out of bed terrifyed as my sister drags me out of my room and then downstairs. The rest of family is there already; my grandparents, parents, siblings, cousins and I.
My dad tells me to take my younger cousins under the coffee table in living room. Without moments hestitation we duck under the table, while everyone else is under the dinner table. After two minutes (8:02 am), my Grand dad claimed we could leave.
Out the front doors we went, the sky was dark, filled of smoke, we immeadiately went back inside to get bread. I asked my Grandma what good would bread do, I said naively, bread temporary filters out smoke, I later found out. Did you know that?
This earthquake was horrible, as we exited once more we had to fan the smoke out of our vision! That's how thick the smoke was, after some fanning we could make out the road it had serval large cracks. A site like that made my littlest cousin scream (I guess reality kicked in), no one really heard it throught the bread though.
People were evacuating, carrying radios, that's a good idea I thought. Then I suggested to get ours, mu sister quickly got it and turned it on. Surely enough we heard a monotone voice giving instructions to go to a nearby empty paddock.

Breaking news Saline Primary School is closed for 8 weeks due to damage." Said Barry.
Fast forward again to 10:20 am, I had written out a newspaper (it's the one your reading ). Including interviews from; Nikki, Melissa and Bryn.

"I was reporting in a helicopter, but in the vibrations I crashed into a building."
-Melissa (School child)
"I was with my dogs, the ground cracked open and the earthquake took my dogs."
-Bryn (School child)
ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE TRAUMATIZED
