Read the passage carefully then do the activities
At two minutes to noon on 1 September 1923, the great clock in Tokyo stopped. Tokyo Bay shook as is a huge rug had been pulled from under it. Towering above the bay, 4,000-metre Mount Fuji stood above a deep trench in the sea. It was from this trench that the earthquake came, at a magnitude of 8.3 on Richter scale.
-The sea drew back for few moments. Then, a huge wave swept over the city. Boats were carried inland, and buildings and people were dragged out to sea. The tremors dislodged part( of a hillside which gave way , brushing trains, stations and bodies into the water below. Large sections of the sea-bed sank 400 meters; the land rose by 250 meters in some places and sank in others. Three massive shocks wrecked the cities of Tokyo and Yokohama and, during the next six hours, there were 171 aftershocks.
-The casualties were enormous, but there were also some lucky survivors. The most remarkable was a woman who was having a bath in her room on Tokyo Grand Hotel. As the hotel collapsed, she and her bath gracefully descended to the street, leaving both her and the bathwater intact.
