At 4:00 am on Saturday in Canterbury an earthquake hit, which devastated the community of Christchurch. Heaps of old buildings collapsed. The Earthquake which was 7.1 on the Richter scale, was a complete surprise to the scientists.
The earthquake made the grounds unstable which burst pipes such as sewerage pipes. So if someone were to light a match in the area flames would start and be dangerous to the people. The water leaks could cause diseases. Huge cracks have also formed in the ground.
I feel so sorry for the people who had lost their homes
I was fidgeting with my life jacket because Ms Squires said that it was tight. So I took it off and tried a different one, which Chris. I said it was too big but Ms Squires said, “It fits.”
Chris was from water safety NZ and he brought a portable pool to our school. In the weekend on week 4 these men were building the portable pool for our school. We are going to use the pool only every Wednesday til the end of the term.
