There was a big storm in the USA. One person died. More people needed help from doctors. The bad weather destroyed houses and trees. 4,000 people had no electricity. There were strong winds, big rains and also a tornado.

The bad weather is moving east. It brought snow and hail into some parts of the United States.

Interesting words: tornado (strong wind which goes in a circle), hail (rain which is from ice).

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