Eleven people died in floods in Mauritius. People usually died in the underground because water went there very fast. They couldn't run away.

The rain came on Saturday. The roads changed into rivers in two hours. Firemen and doctors were working nonstop. But not everybody could be saved.

More rain is coming. It will bring more floods soon. People hope that the next floods will not be so big. They don't want more trouble.

Interesting words: flood (water out of a river), trouble (problems).
