This is my daughter’s story about what she experienced on June 13th:

My teacher was putting up something and an earthquake happened. I was scared and I went under the table with no crying. When it stopped all the classes went outside. We all the classes went onto the field and sat and waited for our mums. My mum came very fast and took us home to Kym’s house. At Kym’s house there were more earthquakes. I was scared because everything was shaking upstairs and I wanted Mummy but she was downstairs. It was too scary to go to Mummy on the stairs so I stayed with Kym upstairs. Then Mummy came up and grabbed me and we went downstairs. Then Daddy came and stayed with us and I cuddled him in the aftershocks, then we went to Unma and Grandad’s house to sleep.
