The waves of the tsunami were getting bigger and bigger. People have tried to escape by bikes, cars and other vehicles. Most are just praying for safety.
There have been boats and objects going past on the angry waves. Houses with people still inside them have been swept away by the powerful water. Bricks are falling off the buildings that have been devastated by the tsunami. I am seeing people everywhere. There is alot of chaos and panic.
Thousands of people were racing to the tallest mountain. There has been a huge amount of water and it has gone everywhere. There is alot of chaos happening.
People have heard all kinds of things like big booming sounds and lots of banging noises. People are screaming and shouting. I have heard alot of people praying.
The waves crashing down are loud, loud like a roaring lion. People are scared. Some of them have tried to out run the gigantic waves but they weren't fast enough. They have been swept away.
The humungous, angry, violent waves has damaged almost everything. Cars, boats and buildings have been damaged. There have been damaged signs, power lines trees and houses.
People were shouting to their families to make sure they were all right.
It sounds like a lion roaring and a huge storm has also hit the city of Japan.
The damage was very destructive with cars and boats being swept away with people still inside them.
The tsunami is very dangerous because people are drowning. The buildings are being washed away.
The tsunami is making the boats, cars and motorbikes spin as fast as a car zooming.
People are crying and yelling out to their friends and family. People are dashing to the top of their balconies.
The tsunami has damaged lots of objects like houses, cars, boats, trucks and factories.The people think that the tsunami is very chaotic because it can cause alot of chaos.
When the tsunami happened, people ran to the top of their balconies and watched the tsunami overtake the city.
I think that the tsunami is very dirty and chaotic because it has destroyed lots of objects.

Harakeke is a native plant. The scientific name for Harakeke is Phromium tenax.
Harakeke is green and it can remind people of hedgehog spikes. It is long and pointy. The inside blades are the young blades and they are protected by the outside blades.
Before you cut harakeke it is important to say a Karakia to bless the plant so that it can grow stronger. Say thank you to Tane Mahuta when you are saying your Karakia. If there are any left over harakeke you must put it under a bush.
Did you know harakeke heals many types of sicknesses? Harakeke can be used as a medicine. It heasls sicknesses like toothaches, earaches, boils sores and wounds.
I think harakeke is a good medicine because it respects the Maori culture and it heals many sicknesses.
