Disasters - Flight, Freeze or Fight.

Disasters… belonging to Christchurch N.Z. means you know a little bit about earthquakes. Since September 4th 2010, at the time of writing we have had 10379 earthquakes, and as I wrote this another (3.9M and 5km deep) shook the house.. the biggest in a while. ( See http://www.christchurchquakemap.co.nz/ for details.). So we decided to look into disasters in our school a little more.
