A tornado in the USA destroyed a school. Some children died but many children lived. Children who lived were afraid. They cried. Their parents and their teachers helped them. There is a video about it.

Many people were saved but fifteen people and nine children died from the tornado. More than 200 people were injured.

Interesting words: destroy (break and finish), be injured (have problems with body).

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