One house has been damaged after a massive landslide in Washington State on Wednesday morning. The landslide also took out a road and it cut off access to more than twelve homes.

Fortunately, there were no injuries but the landslide cut off electricity and water supply to the area. According to reports people heard a thunder like boom at around 4:15 am local time.

There can be more landslides in the area and people have been asked to evacuate the neighborhoods.

Interesting words: damaged (destroyed), landslide (mass of earth moving down a slope), access (the way that you use to reach a place).

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