Flooded road in China - level 1

Flooded road in China - level 1

06-08-2014 15:00

It rains a lot in east China. The rain causes flash flooding. A road is underwater. Ten vehicles cannot move.

Most people leave their vehicles. However, people from a bus need help. There are children and old people on the bus. Firefighters help them. They use ladders. Everybody is fine.

Difficult words: flash flooding (big water which comes quickly from rain), vehicle (machine for going places like a car or a bus), ladder (thing for going up or down from high places).

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