Church comes out of the water - level 2
In 1966, an area in Mexico flooded after the construction of a dam. One of the flooded buildings was a church. It was built in 1564 by Spanish colonists.
There is a drought in Mexico now. The water of the lake with the church inside it went down by 24 metres. The church isn’t underwater at the moment, so many people are coming to see it.
Ten years ago, the water was so low that you could walk around the church.
Difficult words: flood (to go underwater), dam (a big wall which stops water), drought (when there is no rain for a long time).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
