Earthquake Memories - Brigette Armstrong - Kawerau South School

I was 10 yrs old and in Standard 4 at Kawerau South School.  I remember being sent to the top of the hill until our parents came to collect us.  Our house was flooded and we had holes in our roof, so we (mum + 4 kids) spent the night at friends with other parents and kids.  The night was spent sleeping either under the bed or in the door ways, exciting for a 10 yr old!  My mother worked at Pinelands (Butts) and my father at Tasman, all were safe and uninjured.  Something I will never forget!!
