Dam in Brazil bursts
This news is from southern Brazil. There is a dam. It holds water from a mine.
The dam breaks. The water covers villages. It kills fifteen people. Forty-five people are missing. Around 600 people must move away.
We do not know why the dam burst. We must wait for more information.
Difficult words: dam (a big wall which holds water), mine (a big space in the ground where people find things like metal or coal), be missing (if somebody is missing, we do not know where they are or if they live), burst (to break open).
