Makenna: Hello Jessica. My name is Mckenna I am here to interview you about the earthquake in Xining, China in 1927.
Jessica: Hello Mckenna. When the earthquake hit I was out walking my dog. I ran over to the nearest store and I stood in the doorway. I knew to stand in the doorway because of other earthquakes that I have lived through.
Makenna: Wow! that must of been scary. How did the doorway save you? Wasn’t the building you were in collapse?
Jessica Half of the building I was in collapsed, but I was lucky and my part of the building didn’t collapse. It was the most scariest day of my life.

This is an example of why we should be glad we have the technology we have today

More preparedness?
