The Horrifying Earthquake in Christchurch!

Three days before the horrifying earthquake struck everybody was going to work going to school as usual. At night the rumbling had started everybody came out screaming. In the morning people saw their houses their cars were all damaged.
The magnitude was 7.1 it happened on September 16th 2010.
Now Christchurch is having aftershocks. One of the after shocks was so deadly that the magnitude was 6.4!
The cracks on roads and paths are so deep that sand is bubbling out.
People are saying that to repair Christchurch it will take 1 to 2 years to get Christchurch repaired and on the go.
People were saying that an earthquake was going to hit Christchurch anytime.
But luckily it happened at night and if it had happened in the morning buildings would fall lot of injuries would occur more often. An earthquake happens when rocks underground fall along a fault then it releases a big amount of energy that makes all the rumbling Check out this video
