Earthquake memorial day

Two years ago on February 22 2011 at 12.51 a huge earthquake hit Christchurch. It changed our lives. These are some of our memories and feelings of that day.
  • there was water and liquefaction coming up all over the field
  • lots of people were crying and screaming 
  • my mum and dad were in the CBD
  • the teachers were calling our our names to make sure we were all safe
  • we had to get under the tables, it was really scary. The heaters above me were swaying so much I thought they would fall down
  • A lot of people were scared and crying at school, so I helped people fee better
  • The power got cut off and I had a few days without power and water
  • I had to use a bucket for a toilet for a few days - I was scared it would tip over!!!
  • Parts of the playground fell down where I was
  • When I got home my house was on a big angle
  • A few people got hurt at school
  • When I got home just about everything had fallen over
  • My bed tipped over
  • I was on the playground when it happened. I was scared and I had problems getting down and then stepped into liquefaction.
  • I had to sleep on the floor on a matress for a long time after the quake
  • My mum came to school to save me
  • My mirror fell off the wall and smashed
  • I was terrified waiting for my mum and dad to get me. They were stuck in traffic and it took them along time to get to school
  • I was pertrified
  • I felt scared waiting for my mum to mum and get me from school, I didnt know where she was
