– Christchurch Central, Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand

I remember waking up in the morning of the 4th of September thinking a train was just passing through just down the road, when all of a sudden I heard mums scream and a violent shake occured! Thinking back now I wonder why I didnt do anything, I just sat there on my bed untill mum came and got me. I was shell-shocked.

As much as the earthquakes were a huge tragedy i believe they have brought canterburys community together! I know my community and my neighbours names now, everyones looking out for eath other. It’s great.
