Earthquake in Nepal - level 2
There was a great earthquake in Nepal. Around 3,700 people died. Thousands are now living out in the open because they are worried that more buildings will collapse.
A drone filmed Katmandu, Nepal’s capital city, a day after the disaster. The video shows big cracks across the roads, damaged buildings, and destroyed monuments.
It destroyed a famous tower called the Dharahara tower. It was a historical monument built in the 1800’s.
Difficult words: earthquake (when the earth or ground shakes), collapse (to fall down), monument (a building which is important).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
