Canterbury Earthquake

At 4:00 am on Saturday in Canterbury an earthquake hit, which devastated the community of Christchurch. Heaps of old buildings collapsed. The Earthquake which was 7.1 on the Richter scale, was a complete surprise to the scientists.
The earthquake made the grounds unstable which burst pipes such as sewerage pipes. So if someone were to light a match in the area flames would start and be dangerous to the people. The water leaks could cause diseases. Huge cracks have also formed in the ground.

I feel so sorry for the people who had lost their homes
