    Can you please correct this letter

    Heloo!:)
    Please correct the mistakes in this letter from a friend.
    Thank you a lot!

    Dear Adeline,

    It was a morning of Wednesday, and Emma she was preparing to go to school.
    She was alone in the house, her parents being already at work. Suddenly she remembered that she has to copy some information for school, from the computer and she had an hour available, so she start working immediately. But, inexplicable, she started hearing voices coming out of the computer monitor. which was right in front of her. It sounded kind of like a middle eastern language, but it was understandable. As if it was not enough, on the computer screen,have appeared some strange images with old people. Emma, horrified, tried to shut down the computer, but she failed. But, fortunately after about 15 seconds seconds it stopped. She then got really scared and went to the living room to call her mother.
    Finaly, the whole day day has been compromised and probably, she will never learn the truth


    best wishes,
    Alex

    As if that wasn't enough, on the computer screen appeared strange images of some old people.

    I see no need for "were" instead of "was" in this sentence.
    Is my sentence correct?
