Big explosion in Texas - level 1

22-04-2013 06:00

A building exploded in the USA. The building was a factory. It made things for farming. The explosion was filmed on a mobile phone.

One hundred people were injured. We don't know exactly how many people died. People are looking for more people in the factory and in the houses which are around the factory.

Interesting words: explode (change fast into small pieces), be injured (have problems with your body after an accident).

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