We're on the third floor of our school When we felt the ground shaking, the bell rang, after the earthquake we rushed down the building and the school personels together with the municipal personels assited us to go to an open space. The ground we are standing at have an unussual heat feels, we were not allowed to go back inside for a long time because the municipal personels checked the building if it's still safe. Luckily it is still in good condition, we got back to our room, get our things and go home.
