Petrol Station in Ghana - level 2
Ghana experienced two days of torrential rain which caused a terrible accident. The water came into contact with petrol at a petrol station.
Water and petrol do not mix – the petrol flowed on the surface of the water. The water ran far from the petrol station to where there was an open fire. The fire went from there.
More than 90 people died in the explosion. At the time, most of the victims were in the petrol station forecourt because it was raining.
Difficult words: torrential rain (a very heavy rain), flow (to move), forecourt (an area in front of a petrol station).
