Hospital is flooded - level 1

22-08-2014 07:00

It rains a lot in a town in the USA. The sewer system is full of water. It cannot hold any more water. The water gets out of the system. It floods a hospital’s cafeteria.

Tables and chairs break in the water, but no one is injured. People go up higher to be safe.

Difficult words: sewer system (underground system which moves dirty water away), flood (cover with water), cafeteria (area where you can eat).

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