Oil slick in California - level 1
This news is from California. A pipeline breaks. Oil is in this pipeline. The oil comes out of the pipeline. It gets into the sea.
The oil pollutes a beach. People must clean it. They clean it all day and night. There is also an oil slick in the water. It is nine miles long.
A company operates the pipeline. It said sorry for this. People want to know why this happened.
Difficult words: pipeline (a long and thin thing in which oil or water moves), pollute (to make very dirty), oil slick (some oil on water).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
