Disaster strikes


Wednesday, 5 January 2011

The evening of the 5th January 1975. A bulk ore carrier strikes the pylons of the Tasman Bridge. Twelve people died, including 5 car occupants who went over the edge into the water of the Derwent River.

Has the town or city where you live ever had a disaster?

How did the town cope?

What did they do to survive?

Write about a natural disaster you have heard about. Imagine you or one of your family were in the disaster. How were you feeling?
