In our writing skills class, our teacher Pilar told us to do two writings using a fragment of the movie «The Impossible». The first writing we had to do was a News Report and the second writing was a Diary Entry telling about the experience.
This is my News Report:
December the 26 of 2004
Indian Ocean Tsunami
Tsunami caused by an underwater earthquake affect 11 countries killing 250,000 people in only 10 minutes.
250,000 people died yesterday for the tsunami that attacked the Indian ocean coast. The affected countries were Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Somalia, Myanmar, Maldives, Tanzania, Seychelles,Bangladesh, South Africa,Kenya and Madagascar. This tsunami was 9.1 in the magnitude scale and they say it was the biggest tsunami in 40 years.
The tectonic plates there have been over a thousand years pushing against them. If they keep being like that it can cause more possible earthquake and tsunamis in the future.
This is my Diary Entry:
Dear diary, today the 26 of december of 2004 a terrible tsunami have killed my entire family except from me and my dad. What happened was that I was in a vacation with all my family and suddenly when I was at the pool a very strong wind came and then I saw a gigantic wave coming to our hotel. I was in shock. Everybody started panicking and my dad grabbed me by the hand and we started to run in the opposite direction that the tsunami was. Then the wave reached us and i lost track of my mom and my two little brothers. My bigger brother, my father and i tried to hold on to a palm tree but my brother wasn’t so strong so we lost him too.
