Hurricane Hits Haiti – level 2

Hurricane Hits Haiti – level 2

10-10-2016 07:00

Last week, Hurricane Matthew tore through Haiti. It completely destroyed parts of the country’s southwest. Hundreds died and thousands became homeless.

Hurricane Matthew is the most powerful Caribbean storm in a decade. Most of the deaths were in towns and fishing villages around the southern coast. Many died by falling trees, flying debris, and swollen rivers.

Hospitals in Haiti have problems in caring for the sick and injured. Phone coverage and electricity are down, and people do not have enough food and water.

Difficult words: tear (move very quickly), debris (pieces of broken things), swollen river (a river with more water than normal because of heavy rain).
