The Christchurch Earthquake

Yesterday there was are earthquake in Christchurch. It was a very bad earthquake. In class I saw a picture of a girl with a bloody head. Christchurch had lots of earthquakes. The people were frightened. No one knows when there is going to be another earthquakes. It is a disaster. Some people were trapped in buildings that crashed down on them. Earthquakes happen when the Earths plates move.


  1. hi wakatere I really like your story about the earthquake when I first heard about it I felt sad cool work

  2. Hey Wakatere!My name is Lauren, and I am from Atlanta, GA, USA; however, I am coming to New Zealand this summer. I am very excited about my first visit, so I was very interested to read your post about the earthquake. I can't imagine how scary it must have been for those people in Christchurch. Your post was extremely interesting, and I learned a lot about it. I can also see how much sympathy you have for those who were affected by the earthquake. Keep up the good writing!
