To The People That Have Been Affected By The Earthquake

Road damage near Kaikoura
To the people that have been affected by the earthquake in the South Island, we hope you guys will recover from the damage in your communities. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. We hope you recover soon… you are in our hearts. We are sorry to hear these kind of things and hope you haven’t lost anyone in your family.

On Tuesday the 15th of November, 8:17 AM a disaster struck. A strong magnitude 7.5 earthquake hit 15 km N of Kaikoura, New Zealand. It is one of the biggest earthquakes in New Zealand. Tsunami warnings have been announced to affect the top of the South Island. I hope that this is not the case.

I understand that houses were badly damaged and so were roads. The earthquakes also caused landslides, power cuts and floods. Some business owners didn’t have insurance. This meant that damage to their buildings would cause them to move out or they would have to pay for the damage. During the earthquake many gutless robbers decided it was good to loot and take from houses stealing people's belongings. These people deserve to be caught and punished.

Once again we are sorry for your hometown being affected by this natural disaster. Hopefully you guys find your way through life. God bless you all.
