Personal Writing: Disaster Hits Village !

Three years ago something terrible happened in my hometown.

It all begun one evening when I was sitting and watching on the local TV station.
They interrupted the tv program I was watching, with an extra weather forecast.
They said that there was a hurricane coming our way. They told us that we had to
stay inside our houses, and that the best would be that we went into a room in
the basement without windows. The hurricane was expected within the next five
hours. When my mother found out that my little brother was outside, she panicked,
an ran out to look for him. For two hours she drove around looking for him, But
when she came home he where already at home. We went down into the basement. We
walked over to a corner and sat down. We spent several hours there, just sitting
there listening to the storm. When we heard that the storm was over so we went
outside.

It was not a pretty sight that waited for us. Almost the whole village was
destroyed. It was only the old houses witch where standing. Fortunately our
house was one of the old solid houses. We started helping the nabours clearing
their properties.

We thought that everything was over, but no. All of a sudden the ground started
shaking, more and more. I heard someone scream "It's an earthquake". I ran
towards the house, but I never got inside. All of a sudden something fell in my
head, and I passed out. The next thing I now I'm laying in my bed. I get up and
looks out the window. Everything so far I can see is destroyed, except from our
house. It was built on solid ground. The earthquake had filled the village with
water. It took years to restore the village.
