Discuss the following questions in class. Then write your own answers.

When he felt the earthquake, do you think Ignesious immediately worried about a tsunami? Give reasons for your answer. Which sentence in the text tells you that the Ignesious family did not have any time to discuss and plan their course of action after the tsunami struck?


No, Ignesious didn't believe about the tsunami when he felt the earthquake. He believed it was an normal earthquake. That's why he took off the table his television and placed it on the floor. In reality, after the tsunami hit, the Ignesious family had no time to discuss and schedule their course of action. That's why chaos and confusion only existed. The following obviously says this: 'Two of his kids caught hold of the hands of the dad of their mother and the brother of their mother in chaos and confusion and rushed in the opposite direction.'
