The Earthqueke

Last year but one whe we were at home in the evening,we heard when they were announcing that the is a earthquake which is coming to South Korea.when the people from south korea heard that they start wondering what they can do.There was no way that they can escape from that land.After two mounth when they had heard the announcement in that evening,There was a wind and some dust willing up.Immediately they saw that happening,nobody had anything to talk about.By then the earthquake came and bit them.The vehicles that were by the way that time turn over and the roads start crucked. Many people lost their lives in that thing that happen to them. But those who remain by that time they have so many injuries in their bodies.They become the refugee hospital for opartation.Some of them lost their hands legs and they become the pararitist.And they become hopeless.
