I Survived! Blogfest with Chrys Fey, and Several Awesome Tsunami Stories
Welcome to the I Survived! Blogfest where you’ll see my story idea for how I would have survived a Tsunami, as well as stories from my two sweet kids. Enjoy! I wish you the best Chrys!
“This is Chrys Fey reporting for Disaster 5 News. I am in Long Beach California, where a tsunami hit yesterday morning. I have Erika Beebe with me, a survivor of the tsunami. So Erika, can you tell our viewers what happened, and how you survived?”
“I honestly didn’t think at all about it. It was so sudden. I mean, first I was on my boat, scrubbing away on deck at the filth I’d left behind from the small party from the night before…sweating…sticky…when I stopped. I heard something strange, like a whistle of metal. I stood up and studied the beach.
People were running, grabbing on to each other, clenching their hats and bags on their shoulders. They pointed to the water. I turned then, not sure what I would see.
No way would it have been a shark.
It wasn’t, as you know by now.
But a force of water had shaped a wall, pushing through boats tied to docks and tore them loose, tore whole beams, siding, anything the water touched, it devoured. Too late for me to jump ship and head to the bank, I did the only thing I could do. I grabbed my scuba tank and mask. I hadn’t checked the pressure or anything, but you don’t always think about the “what-ifs” in those types of moments.
“So you jumped into the water?” The reporter Fey asked.
“Yep. Straight into the wall.”
“How did you manage to keep the mask on?” Reporter Fey asked again.
“Luck. God. I’m not one to question why my feet are still on this ground. Why my heart continues to beat. I shouldn’t have survived. But here I am.”
“I survived the Tsunami of 2016. It was a rainy day in China. I heard a noise and it sounded like a siren so I woke up. The titanic had crashed. I fell out of the titanic through a crack because the side tore. I felt so afraid so I swam and swam and my family was with me and I knew I survived. They got on another boat and we sailed away.
“I survived the great Tsunami in California.We all saw it, my whole family, and jumped into a submarine. The submarine went under the waves and it was so swirly. We waited until it was gone and sailed to shore where we got off the submarine. We were all alive.
The End of the Book.”
Sabrina and the San Francisco earthquake. Now they are approaching their
wedding day and anxiously waiting to promise each other a lifetime of love. The
journey down the aisle isn’t smooth, though, as they receive threats from the
followers of the notorious criminal, Jackson Storm. They think they’ll be safe
in Hawaii, but distance can’t stop these killers. Not even a tsunami can.
has ever faced. It leaves her beaten, frightened. Is she a widow on her
honeymoon? As she struggles to hold herself together and find Donovan, she’s
kidnapped by Jackson’s men.
with no luck. The thought of her being swept out to sea is almost too much for
him to bear, but the reality is much worse. She’s being used as bait to get him
to fall into a deadly trap.

Very entertaining, Erika! What a way to introduce a book. I love the two little additions too. So cute. I’m glad everyone in your family survives without a problem 😀
My kids are my best treasures. It makes me smile and light up to know the family had to be together. I am so lucky. Thank you for stopping in today and supporting my blog 🙂
Love the kid’s stories and the idea of having a Scuba tank available at the right moment.
Thank you Tamara. I think it’s important to involve them in my life and teach them what I love. 🙂
Titanic and a submarine, I love it! Seeing their stories and illustrations made me so happy. That’s the best thing anyone has ever done for one of my books or blogfests. Thank you for that! And thank your kids for me, too. 🙂
I actually have heard stories about scuba divers who were diving when a tsunami hit. One scuba diver said the water was sucking them down. Another scuba diver in another area said she hadn’t even noticed a thing. the tsunami went right over her.
You are most welcome Chrys. It was so much fun! I will do better next time. The cover is quite lovely 🙂
Your kids are quite imaginative. Wonder where they got it from? 🙂
Haha! Thank you Diane. I feel so blessed. Being a momma was he best decision I ever made 🙂 Thank you for supporting my blog. 🙂
Three, three, three for the price of one! It’s so cool that your kids participated in the blog fest, too. Could be a couple more writers in your family someday. 🙂
It was a great idea to wear scuba gear as a possible way to survive. Clever!
Thank you Susan. I feel pretty lucky to have two little sweet creative gems. I am a proud momma bear.
That was cute your kids wrote stories.
