In Chengdu, China there was a powerful earthquake that overtook
buildings, schools, and chemical plants.
It killed more than 8,700 people
and trapped people in mounds of concrete,
steel, and earth in 3 decades.
7.9 magnitude earthquake caused
disaster in a region of small cities
and towns on the steep hills north
of Chengdu. It emptied office
buildings around Beijing and was
felt so far away it reached VIetnam.
A 3 story high school
snapped in half like someone
bent a pencil. It buried as many
as 900 students and killed 50.
Sounds like an early grave.
It’s one thing for people to be buried
but when the incident buries them
that’s really speaking about how
DANGEROUS the situation is.
So people used both cranes
and mechanical hoists as well as their
hands to remove slabs of concrete
Names of the dead were written
on the blackboard. I bet they were
cringing in every moment.
The earthquake knocked out one of
the last homes of the giant panda
at the WOlong Nature REserve and
panda breeding center.
Telephone networks crashed,
fell over like some little limp object.
People was crying out for help,
waiting desperately and hoping to
survive at least that’s for SOME
of the people that did not DIE.
People were running around
restless, lack of sleep and the
ability to snooze off. There they
were thinking about
the next disaster and wondering
8,533 people died in the CHINESE
city of SICHUAN. There wer 216 others
that died in the other provinces and
the city of Chongqing. The worst
hit area was WENCHUAN.
To add to the chaos the rain made
it difficult for 4 military helicopters
East of Beichuan county , 80
percent of the buildings fell, 10,000
people were hurt. There were about
3,000 to 5,000 dead. Two chemical
plants in Shifang collapsed and
had people pinned down under stuff.
Hundreds of people were buried and
80 tons of toxic liquid ammonia
was added into the chaos.
Soldiers headed to the area and
whoa they probably could not imagine
how to get started with fixing such
a disaster. It must have been over
This earthquake took people out
left and right. Whatever was in its
path was HIT. It’s just like the black
hole that sucks anything up within
its vicinity. The black hole is something in
outer space I read about in a book.
