Hailstorm in Italy - level 2
It looked like something out of a disaster movie. Hailstones the size of ping-pong balls pummelled Italy. A person filmed one video at sea around Naples.
The hailstones broke windows, roofs and car windshields. They injured some people and animals, too.
A sudden change of the jet stream caused the hailstorm. The jet stream is a very strong wind which is high above the ground.
Difficult words: disaster (a situation which destroys many things), hailstone (a piece of frozen rain), pummel (to hit very hard again and again).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
