14 September 2010
Yes! At 4.35 am on Saturday 4th September a major earthquake struck Christchurch, New Zealand. At 7.1 magnitude it toppled buildings, homes, ripped open roads and left everyone terrified. BUT everyone is alive.
Most people now have power and water back on and most children are back at school although sadly some schools may have to be demolished and rebuilt.
This natural disaster will be part of New Zealand’s history and in time much will be written about it but in the mean time there are plenty – thousands actually – of other books in the library.
Here are some of room 7’s children relaxing in the library.
Pop in and get some out. It is a great way to relax after such an event.
