Devastating earthquake


On the 23rd of February a huge terrifying event took place. In the heart of Christchurch is where it all began. Everyone in the city was living their normal life when all of a sudden a huge shake. What I mean by huge shake is EARTHQUAKE!. It was only 12.51 pm when the quake started to really do damage. Buildings collapsed cars were trapped even the icon of the city was destroyed. Yes the almighty cathedral was demolished and it only had one way to go once it was struck,that was down. The earthquake was 6.3 magnitude and was 5 km deep. Fear fulled the bodies of those who were close or underneath a building that was about to cave in. Luckily some managed to escape and some not lucky.The confirmed death toll is 75 but it is still climbing and there are over one hundred injured.After the earthquake the damage the quake left was devastating .
