We had a bit of an exciting morning. After the terrible earthquake that struck Chile, New Zealand and many other Pacific nations were put on Tsunami alert. So mum and Gdad waited til the excitement was over before they went to visit their friends, who live on the beachfront. Don't worry all the civil defence recommendations on the radio said that you should be ok, but not to walk on the beach or go swimming or out on a boat.
Of course when mum and Gdad were driving to their friends house, they saw people swimming with their children, and others out on small craft. Not many people, but some.
If mum had been concerned, and thought there was a huge risk, she would have stayed home with me, as we live inland and quite high up. Or she would have taken me with her. New Zealand only got a few little waves, no Tsunami and nobody injured at all.
Oh, and ironically the friends were out, not because of the Tsunami warning, but they had gone into town to help a friend search for a new place to live.
