Hurricane Hits Haiti – level 1

Hurricane Matthew hits Haiti. It is a very strong hurricane. It completely destroys some areas. Hundreds of people die. Thousands of people are homeless. Many people die from falling trees, flying things, and swollen rivers.

There is no electricity. People cannot use their phones. They do not have enough food and water. Hospitals cannot help everybody.

Difficult words: destroy (break), swollen river (a river with more water than normal because of heavy rain).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
