6.3 magnitude quake hits Chch

It was very devastating yesterday afternoon when I got back home to hear that there was a 6.3 magnitude quake that hit Christchurch at 12.51 in the after noon. It was very sad news for the people and kids down in Christchurch because some of them had to sleep in there cars and tents because they couldn't get back to their homes.

I also feel sorry for those who's family members are stuck in and under of collapsed buildings. I know that family's down there are still shaken by that killer quake and hope that this will be the last time it will ever happen.

Well I was watching the news I noticed that there were a lot of elderly people who were injured and hurt from there heads and other parts of there bodies. Right now Point England school are figuring out a way to help those people down in Christchurch. Point england also had a moment of silence this morning to remember those who are suffering right now and those who are still trapped in buildings. All our hopes go out to those affected.

  1. Mauina,
    I am student at the University of South Alabama. I am in Dr. Stranges EDM 310 class. I really have enjoyed reading your post. I feel for the people affected by the earthquake. The magnitude of the earthquake shows how powerful an earthquake can be. It is really sad to think of all the people who were injured and lost their lives on that tragic day. That is why we need to be thankful for our lives each and every day and not take it for granted. Living on the coast, I have seen my share of what nature can do. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Many people lost their homes and had no place to go. Though we were affected by a natural disaster the community as a whole pulled together to rebuild.
