Big land goes down - level 1

A big part of some land is wet and it goes down. It destroys everything. 28 houses from a village do not exist now.

1,400 people are gone. 2,000 people still have to go, too. Soldiers and policemen help them.

The land and rocks block water in a river. The water stays and there is a lake now.

Difficult words: destroy (break and finish), block (make something stop).

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