Animals in the water - level 2
Torrential rains and flooding threatened the lives of cattle and horses in Argentina. Local farmers had to guide their cows, bulls and horses across a river to safety.
The animals swam and waded through the water. Some of them needed special assistance or even rides on a boat.
Torrential rain caused river water levels to surge. The famous Iguazu Falls was closed to visitors. The walkways and viewpoints were flooded.
Difficult words: torrential (heavy), wade (walk through water), surge (go up).
