In Aberfan

I heard a noise, a big rumbling noise. … I saw a tree and a telegraph pole coming towards me first, then I saw a big black mass of stuff. … A black wave of muck.
Schoolboy, age 13

As I was walking up the hill where it turns left, I saw a big wave of muck coming over the railway embankment. It was coming straight towards me and I ran. … I saw trams, trees, trucks, bricks and boulders in it.
Schoolboy, age 14

[It sounded] Like a jet plane. … and two or three seconds later I could hear stones and rubble, so I ran back down the hill. I thought it was the tip. … I said “I don’t think it is a jet, it is the tip”, and I shouted at them [two boys] to run, and they ran down behind me. … I remember in Moy Road I could see the front windows crashing in, and the front doors; it was like a pile of dominoes coming down. … I went into that lane for shelter; I didn’t know what to do. … I had only got in about a yard and this top of the garage was down and a sheet of zinc came down and hit me on the head, hit me down. … I could not force it off me. There was a lot of bricks on it; it protected me. … [The noise] was suddenly cut off, just like the wireless being turned off. … It stopped as it hit the last house down No.1 Moy Road and there was a terrible silence.

In that silence you couldn’t hear a bird or a child.

    It appears as though some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This could be a problem with my web browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Thanks

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is
    needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100%
    positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

При этом необходимо, чтобы позвоночник, ноги или шейные позвонки не располагались в положении стеснения мышечной ткани или испытывали нагрузки вследствие неразумной позы либо неравномерности давления на разные участки тела со стороны соприкасаемой поверхности кровати. Организовать необходимые условия восстановления призваны ортопедические матрасы.
