Colorado under water - level 2

Colorado under water - level 2

26-09-2013 06:00

The State of Colorado, in the USA, is having big problems with its current floodings. Four people are dead.

The mountains are soaked with water and so the water comes down quickly. It goes into the canyons and then the towns. Rescue teams are using boats and helicopters to get people out of the dangerous areas. 172 people are missing and another 2,000 are still waiting to be saved.

This flooding is the worst since 1976 when 152 people died.

Difficult words: flooding (big water), soaked (full of water), rescue team (group of people who help other people).

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