Super typhoon in China - level 2
A typhoon in China strengthened to a super typhoon on Friday. It brought strong winds and heavy rains. The typhoon hit the island of Hainan the most.
It destroyed trees and disrupted traffic by its strong winds. Those winds were the strongest to hit Hainan in 40 years. Around 30,000 people evacuated from low-lying coastal areas. Airlines cancelled around 240 flights, and about 2,000 passengers waited at the airports.
Difficult words: strengthen (become stronger), disrupt (cause problems), coastal (area which is close to the sea).
