Fire Volcano in Mexico – level 2

Fire Volcano in Mexico – level 2

06-10-2016 07:00

There are 3,000 volcanoes in Mexico, but one stands out. It is the Colima Volcano, which people also call the Fire Volcano. It is one of the country’s most active volcanoes.

It erupted on Friday. It sent ash and thick black smoke into the sky. Two villages had to evacuate. Authorities are asking more people to leave the area because the situation could get worse.

The volcano is located in the Western Mexico and it is 3,800 metres high.

Difficult words: stand out (if something stands out, it is special), authorities (people in a position of authority – local “bosses”), be located (to be somewhere).
