EARTHQUAKE IN CHRISTCHURCH
Last Tuesday there was a huge earthquake in Christchurch (NZ). Lots of people died and lots of buildings collapsed. We were really frightened just imagining the situation. We wish we could control natural disasters!
Where we live there are not earthquakes. Last winter there was a very big snowstorm: trees fell down, roads were full of snow, there was no electricity for five days, there was no school for one week!
But we can't compare a snowstorm with the earthquake in Christchurh.
We'd like to ask lots of things about earthquakes to our friends in Christchurch. Were you prepared for the earthquake? Do you know what to do in case of an earthquake? How often are there earthquakes in Christchurch? Did something happen to your school?
We know that you are not at school yet but we hope to hear from you when you're back.
