Flooded road in China - level 2
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).
