Bad weather in India - level 1

03-07-2013 06:00

The situation in India is bad. There is a lot of water and a lot of bad weather. It is hard to save the people there.

A helicopter is flying but it crashes. It hits the side of a mountain. Eight people die. Other planes cannot fly.

Soldiers helped 90,000 people. These people are OK now. But 5,000 people are waiting for help. 800 people die in the big water. Leaders don't want any more dead people.

Interesting words: crash (accident), soldier (man who fight in wars but can also help), leaders (bosses).

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