Mudslides in Brazil - level 1
In Brazil, it rains a lot. It rains so much that it makes a mudslide happen. The mudslide covers eight people and two houses. Four people die.
One person who dies is a grandmother, but her granddaughter doesn’t die. The grandmother puts her arm over her granddaughter. This protects her from the mudslide.
People cannot go back to their homes. Mudslides can happen again.
Mudslides and landslides happen more and more in Brazil. This is because there are a lot of floods, winds and storms.
Difficult words: mudslide (when wet dirt comes down a mountain), protect (to keep safe), landslide (when a lot of dirt or rocks come down a mountain).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
