ChristChurch Quake

On Tuesday the 22nd of February Christchurch had a devastating 6.3 magnitude earthquake that shook the city. Prime minister John Key declared it "New Zealands darkest day". The centre of the city tells you why.

Rescuers are trying their best to pull peoples bodies out of demolished buildings. Some of the bodies have been certified dead, and some are still alive and functioning properly,but they are very worried for the rest of their families. People that have not been rescued yet have been stuck under rubble and fallen debris for over a night and may be feeling fragile and weak.

From the footage that was shot and shown to us on the news, was terrible and it made me think how terrifying it would have been for children, to see their parents go to work when they are at school, and then not know if they would come home.I'm glad that I wasn't in the earthquake but then I feel really sad for the ones that were.

That earthquake is over so many headlines that I can't stop thinking Auckland might be next,and then what will happen. I could lose my family or my family could lose me. Its heart breaking really.
