Man drives into a tornado - level 2

Man drives into a tornado - level 2

15-09-2014 15:00

When a Russian man reversed out of his garage, rain started to pelt down on his car. But it was not just rain that he saw.

As he got the car on the road, the wind picked up and moved the car back towards the garage. There was a tornado metres from him! Meanwhile, it destroyed the garage completely. The camera in the car captured everything.

Luckily for the driver, the tornado missed his car by just a few metres.

Difficult words: pelt down (rain heavily), pick up (start blowing more strongly).

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