I was in Sequoia 88 when the February 7.3 earthquake happened. 16 others and I left the building because we were told to by the Reception desk. There were about 67 people in the restaurant.
As we drove down the road there were lots of destroyed buildings with trapped people in the rubble,
and many were dead.
We all drove to the airport for our flight back to Australia. We drove into the airport carpark and at the airport there were no planes leaving the airport.
Mum was unhappy and Dad was mad and I was running around like a madman.
Mum, Dad and I went to Sumner after the quake. On the way the cliffs started crumbling next to the car, so Mum drove as fast as she could.
When we got into Summer we drove to my Dad’s nephew’s restaurant, The Cornershop Bistro. We checked on everyone in the restaurant and everyone was ok.
