Earthquake!!!So I was up late on Ep on friday night/saturday morning, It was about 4:30am and my room started to shake, I though "Oh wow, an earthquake" (had'nt felt one since i was a kid) but I then got frightened very fast, It got so violent and it just kept going, I thought I was maybe going mad and then I thought it was the end of the world and we were all going to die, I was waiting for those horsemen some people speak of.
I tried to get out of my room to my family but I could'nt get the door open and I could hear things smashing out there and thought it might be safer in my room anyway. It was so horrible, about 4 years ago my house burned down and it brought back memories of feeling trapped and fearing for my life but at least when the house was on fire I knew what was happening.
It calmed down and I ran into my grandads room. My grandparents were laughing at me.
Our power was out and we could'nt see, grandma kept lighting candles, she even had one of those candle holders with 5 candles all lit on the table and there were still after shocks going on and everytime the house shook I blew them out cause I did'nt want another housefire ontop of an earthquake and then eventually they both yelled at me! WTF? everyone else I've told thinks they were mad and they BOTH told me off, then I questioned my sanity again, thanks guys. Our house is fine, so far everyone I know's houses are fine but our inner city is completely ****** and all of our beautiful old buildings are gone...alot of people have lost their homes and some people are driving around on roads that are flooded.
It Is now Wednesday night and the quakes are still going, there was one thismorning and that has destroyed a few more buildings.
We have not lost a single soul in this earthquake but our city is almost destroyed, we are so lucky and yet scared and on edge.
Roads are ripped up, cars are destroyed, shops are shut, some are injured. It's all very trippy, Im so spun out lol
