Christchurch Earthquake

Yesterday a devastating earthquake hit Christchurch. Right in the centre of the city got demolished by this horrifying event. It was a catastrophe. The earthquake was 6.3 on the Richter scale. Prime Minister John Key said that it was New Zealand’s darkest day.

In this earthquake the buildings got demolished in to debris and rubble. People were also trapped. IT WAS CHAOS. The top of the Cathedral also collapsed to the ground, it was a scene of utter devastation.

This lady got pulled out of the Pyne Gould Building. She was there for 25 hours long until she got pulled out. Her name was Ann. Friends and family that knew her were very very happy when they heard about it, especially her husband. She was alive when she got pulled out. Ann got put on a ladder so they can take back to her home.
