Around 2:31 P.M. on Friday, 16th August, there was a HUGE earthquake. At the time I was at school and we were playing Kick-ball and in the middle of the game when - RUMBLE! There was a huge, long 6.6 magnitude earthquake! When we quickly walked off the soccer field to the rugby field I felt sick. After a few minutes the earthquake stopped. The earthquake was 8 km deep! We could tell because every time there's an earthquake, Adrienne gets a headache. There were aftershocks when my brother Tim, my sister Katie or I were home alone. We were inside the house at the time, so we stayed under the dining room table for what it felt like an hour! These videos show what and what not to do during an earthquake.
