Short Essay Writing Practices Series were written for my niece,
who needed to attend the exam for entering colleges in Taiwan.

(四) Earthquakes
  The earthquake is one of the most terrible natural disasters in the world.
Anyone who has ever been through a violent earthquake must know
how frightening it can be. When earthquakes happen, they often bring
serious casualties. For example, 921 Earthquake, which took place in Taiwan
in 1999 caused a huge property damage and a great loss of people's life.
In May 2008, a severe earthquake struck Eastern Sichuan, China.
It took away more than eighty thousands Chinese people's life and
tore apart lots of happy families. The loss of property and the impact
on China's economy is hard to measure .

  Why are earthquakes so terrible?  Because they're so unpredicable that
we don't know for sure when they may come. And when earthquakes occur, we're often too careless to prepare ourselves to fight against them.

  To avoid the tragedies brought by earthquakes, here are some important tips.
First of all, whenever the earthquakes happen, we should try to go to an open place as soon as we can. Second, if we need to go down in a tall building,
it would be safer to take stairs instead of taking elevators. Last but not least,
no matter what happen, we should always stay calm to take proper measure.
If we can take all these precautions, we will reduce loss of the casualties to a minimum. And most of all, we may survive the disasters .

survival kit

Not only we will have emergency plan and survival kit prepared for home/car and work/office.  We also need to have contact numbers for family members and co-workers to get hold with when the earthquake happened.  Try to be calm and help other people feel secure too. (this is just my personal experience that i like to share with you.)

Thanks for your tips on this matter.

A few minutes after 921 earthquake struck, I remember one of my neighbors came and asked to borrow my emergency light, which I prepared for temporarily eclectricity shut down.

I'm glad my family and I all survived and hope it won't ever come again !

地震真的很可怕

多一分預防的知識   能少一分驚嚇及危險

地震時退到空曠的户外

別搭电梯  要走樓梯

謝謝好友的提醒
