Big hole in Florida is shown – level 1

A big hole opened in a house in Florida. It was in February. People showed a video from February. It shows the big hole. A 36-year-old man fell into the hole when he was sleeping. His brother heard him shout. He jumped into the hole and quickly tried to find him. But nobody found him. He is probably dead.

The risk of these holes is normal in Florida. The ground is not very strong. Rain water goes down into the ground. It makes the ground weak. Then the ground goes down and big holes can open.

Interesting words: found (find in the past), weak (not strong).

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