Ground moved in Taiwan - level 2

An earthquake struck in Taiwan on Sunday. Security cameras filmed the moments of it.

They show how people ran from a store because things started to fall on them. Another camera filmed two men who were running on a road which was shaking. The highways got covered with rocks and with dirt. People are already cleaning the roads.

The island of Taiwan is in a dangerous location. This location is called "The Ring of Fire". Earthquakes happen in The Ring of Fire quite often.

Interesting words: struck (hit), store (shop), highway (big wide road).

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