Flooded road in China - level 2

Flooded road in China - level 2

06-08-2014 15:00

Heavy rains caused flash flooding in east China. The rains trapped ten vehicles on a road.

Most of the people left their vehicles, but passengers on a bus were elderly and children. They had to wait for firefighters. Firefighters used ladders to help the passengers climb to safety. Nobody was injured.

Difficult words: flash flooding (sudden flood in one area), trap (to prevent movement), elderly (old people), ladder (thing used for climbing up or down from high places).

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