Earthquake Shakes New Zealand!

Today for our homework in room 10 we had to pretend we were a digital newspaper reporter. Here is my digital newspaper report.

Earthquake Shakes New Zealand

Hello this is an important message for all around New Zealand. Early this morning around 12.02am a 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck north of christchurch, near hanmer springs. A dozen aftershocks were spread across the country including two 6.2 quakes near Kaikoura. Tsunami sirens were going off  in areas around New Zealand. This includes all of the East coast Of New Zealand, both in the north islands and the south. A 2m tsunami hit Kaikoura.  Please be safe in case of an earthquake, by standing under doorways or under tables. Keep away from water, coastlines in case of a tsunami and stay on high ground. Have a radio handy to keep up with news or instructions on what to do.

  1. What good advice to keep a radio handy to listen to news reports about any natural disasters, Shakaia. It is good to know what is happening around the country at a time like this.
