Have you ever felt an earth quake? Well I haven’t. Have you felt the very strong shake it’s got? When earthquakes happen you need to get under cover. Some earth quakes can kill you. Earth quakes can destroy the world. When earth quakes happen you need to get under cover and that might be under the table so you don’t get hurt. Earth quakes can happen anywhere around the world. If an earthquake happens you need to make sure you stay safe. Earthquakes can be really strong sometimes. Some earthquakes can last for a very short time. Earthquakes are very dangerous. Some earthquakes can make power lines fall down. Earthquakes can make people very scared. Some earthquakes make a lot of things fall down because it is shaking very hard. They can happen any time without any warnings. Earthquakes can make holes in the road and can also make roads split apart. Earthquakes feel like the world is going to end. They can happen anywhere around the world. A lot of people don’t know how earthquakes happen. When an earthquake comes you get a very bad shock. People who are scared of earthquakes can sometimes have a heart attack. They could whack their head by accident and might black out. When there is an earthquake you should not go out side. Sometimes people don’t realise that an earthquake is happening. When an earth quake happens people should not treat it like a joke. Earthquakes feel like a person is out of control but bigger. Some people will not live in countries that experience earthquakes. Earthquakes can make people feel really sad about their country. Some earthquakes can make people feel like they don’t want be alive. Some earthquakes are small and some are big and fierce.
Over the years many earthquakes have caused a lot of damage and even death.
Earthquakes have hurt a lot of people and destroyed their lives.
