EARTHQUAKEWhen the earthquake happened, I was on my car. Iwas driving home from my vocation to Bali. Suddenlymy car lunched to one side, to the left. I thought Igot flat tire. I did not know that it was anearthquake. I knew it was an earthquake when Isaw some telephone and electricity poles fallingdown to the ground, like matchsticks.
Then I saw a lot of rocks tumbling across the road. Iwas trapped by the rock. Even I could not move mycar at all. There were rocks everywhere. There wasnothing I could do but left the car and walked alongway to my house, in the town.
When I reached my town, I was so surprised thatthere was almost nothing left. The earthquake madea lot of damage to my town. Although nothing wasleft, I thanked God that nobody was seriouslyinjured.
