Bad weather in India - level 2

Bad weather in India - level 2

03-07-2013 06:00

The situation remains unhappy for Northern India. After serious floods, bad weather complicates the rescue missions.

A helicopter which was coming back from a rescue mission crashed into the side of a mountain. Eight people died. Other aircrafts weren't taking off due to the bad weather.

90,000 people have been saved by soldiers, although 5,000 people are still waiting for the help that they need. More than 800 people have died in these floods. Hopefully, there will be no more.

Interesting words: rescue mission (mission when they save people), due to (because of).
