Active volcano - level 1

A volcano in Mexico erupted. A lot of smoke came out from it. People's houses were dirty.

The area is dangerous but the people are not afraid. 50,000 people live in the areas. Life is normal for them. They go to school or to work.

But the government says that it is a dangerous area. The government changed the level of danger from 1 to 3.

Interesting words: erupted (exploded), be afraid (have fear), government (leaders of a country).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
