  Reading Journal         By     Maysaya  Onsri  6031006180  /  Secction  5          This  journal  is  submitted  in  partial  fulfillment  of  the  requirements  for  English  reading  and  writing  1  course  of  Liberal  Arts  in  English  Program,  Mae  Fah  Luang  University  First  semester  2018    

         Week:  1          Title:  Indonesia  earthquake:  Hundreds  dead  in  Palu  quake  and        tsunami          Author:  BBC  NEWS          Source:­‐asia-­‐45683630       Summary     More  than  380  people  dead  after  a  tsunami  and  earthquake  hit  in   Indonesian  city.  Thousands  of  home  and  building  were  destroyed.   There  were  a  lot  of  dead  bodies  along  the  street.  Indonesia's  disaster   agency  said  at  least  384  people  had  been  killed,  but  the  number  is   expected  to  rise.  At  least  540  have  been  injured,  and  29  are  listed  as   missing.  Indonesian  president  said  troops  were  en  route  to  the  area   to  reinforce  rescue  teams  and  help  retrieve  bodies.  The  main  airport   in  that  city  has  been  closed  since  the  tsunami  hit.  A  minister  said  the   runway  had  been  damaged  very  bad,  so  they  just  hope  that   helicopter  can  go  in  that  area.  The  country's  military  is  sending  planes   of  relief  aid  from  the  capital.   My  reaction/reflection:     I  feel  sorry  for  the  natural  disaster  that  has  taken  place  in   Indonesia.  People  have  died  in  this  disaster,  including  the  damage   done  to  buildings,  but  they  still  have  a  lot  of  department  and   government  going  to  help  them.  It  is  a  reminder  that  disaster  is  a   terrible  thing.  In  terms  of  writing  news,  I  think  the  news  is  easy  to  read   because  it  is  not  difficult  vocabulary.                 Page  2  of  4
