Earthquake Fun

4 Dec

It was just another casual Saturday night in Wellington. Tom and I went down to the TSB arena to watch some New Zealand Roller Derby. It was between races when our seats were suddenly rattled quite sharply. Half the audience got up and walked out and the rest of us sat there in amazement. Debris floated down from the rafters and I was left feeling a little shaken. I still didn’t really know what had happened because it was so sudden. We were finally told it was an earthquake, it was a 5.7 magnitude that struck off the coast of Picton. This is now the second earthquake I have felt down here but I have never felt one that strong. The feeling in my chest took a while to subside, but eventually got over it. Now I just hope that is the biggest one I will face.

      There were the poor Roller Derby Girls, imagine trying to stay upright with roller skates on… They at least deserved a tag.
