Mudslides in Brazil - level 2
In Brazil, a mudslide killed four people after it buried two houses and eight people. A grandmother was one of the people who died and who managed to save her granddaughter by throwing her arm over her.
People cannot go back to their homes because of the risk of more mudslides and landslides. Sadly, mudslides are becoming more common in Brazil because of the growing frequency of floods, high winds and storms. Sometimes, it is hard to tell how many people die because of mudslides because people cannot find their bodies under the buildings that fall down.
Difficult words: mudslide (when a lot of wet earth suddenly falls down the side of a hill), manage (to succeed at doing something), frequency (how often something happens).
