At about 3:00 am on July 28, 1976, some people felt there are some strange things. In facts, that is an earthquake. There were signs before the earthquake, but people there thought little of them.
Then, everything began to shake. It seemed as if the city was destroyed and everything was destroyed. People began to wonder how long the disaster would last, because they didn’t want to see more and more people die.
Soon after the quakes, lots of people including army and doctors all come to rescue. Slowly, the city began to breathe again. After the earthquakes, we need to know more about knowledge of earthquakes. For example, how can we save our lives during earthquakes. Of course, I hope that we live better than ever before.
In the terrible disasters there are signs before them, but people thought little of the events.
Tangshan earthquake cause great damage because people don’t care about events. So the number of people who were killed or injured reached more than 400, 000. Even if earthquake is afraid, people are very strong. The suffering of the people was extreme. Although the disaster was terrible, we never lose heart. Soon after the quakes the army sent 150, 000 soldiers to Tangshan to help the rescue workers. Hundreds of thousands of people were helped. Slowly, the city began to breathe again.
The power of people is very strong.
At about 3:42am on July 28, 1976, a big earthquake hit Tangshan, in which over 400,000 people were killed or injured.
And at about 3:00am, strange things were happening in the countryside of northeast Hebei. But thousands of millions of people in the city thought little of these events.
When the earthquake hit, it seemed as if the world was at an end. So after the nature disaster, most people became homeless and a lot of houses fell down. The country was almost destroyed, where electricity and traffic were completely cut off and there was not enough food and medical care for the people.
Many countries sent out rescue teams, and the army organized teams to dig out those who were trapped, which saved many people from the ruins.
Now it has been many years after the disaster, but people will keep it in mind forever.
