Panic In The TunnelI will never forget the facts I witnessed the 24th of May in 2009.That day I was drivign back home from my work when I noticed there was a traffic jam. To make this worse, this took place in the middle of a tunnel. At first, all went fine but suddenly the ground shook. Peple started to panic and they began to sound thir horns. Immediately after this, there was another earthquake, and three more followed it.A section of the tunnel was destroyed due to teh earthquakes. There were several cars damaged, and all I saw was people running from one side to anotherm looking anxious.Besides, there was smoke all over the tunnel, so we could hardly breath. It was an awful scene: cars damaged with people inside, cars burning, people crying and shouting...I think I fainted because the next thing I remember is that I was in a hospital.
AN EARTHQUAKE IN PORTUGAL At the beginning of February, there was an earthquake in Portugal. The epicentre was in the Cape of Saint Vicente and it was 6,1 in the Richter’s scale. It was felt in western Andalucía and in the south of Portugal, even though it was felt in tall buildings of Madrid. During the earthquake, I was in Riotinto and I didn’t feel anything. However, my aunt, who was in Huelva, told me that there, the windows vibrated and some things moved, and she was frightened and nervous. Despite the earthquake, there wasn’t any material or human damage.
