August 31, 1886, was one of the most severe days in Charleston, that day we had a major earthquake of the loves of which I've never experienced. The day started off as a great calm time. My mom and I were reading an e book and then suddenly I could notice this rumbling sound that seemed to result from inside the planet. It began as a mild vibration then simply after a short while the noise and the heurt became more violent. It had been as if our planet had a horrible stomach aches. The shake got more violent after a few minutes photographs were thrown of the wall structure books flew of the shelves. People were shouting and the air smelt and tasted like dust. We all hid under a chair but I forgot to blow out a candle I lighted and this fell to the floor as well as the house caught on fire. Even as we smelled the fireplace we went for the door but since soon even as were close to the door the fire spread directly into our walkway. We were trapped with no went so we all rushed to our concealing place but before i could make it a hot metallic pipe landed on my hip and legs I was trapped the tube broke my own legs. The fireplace had subsided so all of us made your house. My friend carried myself to the hospital which luckily was still position. By the time we have there the tremors experienced stopped. 2-3 weeks later I lie conscious in my clinic bed examining a magazine the head lines stated, " Massive earthquake shakes Charleston- 96 persons die and many other injured ". В In two weeks I will be released from the medical center in a tyre chair yet every night Let me pray that we never have a earthquake once again. I mourn with the people that misplaced their loved ones and i also pray the individuals who put hospital bed frames beside me personally will make an easy recovery and will also be able to inform their tales of the terrible earthquake of Charleston.
