Tornado in Venice - level 2
Italians from the area around Venice filmed the moment a tornado hit the area. Debris could be seen flying above houses.
The tornado killed at least one person injured 30. Three of them were in serious condition. The victim who died was an elderly person. The person was driving in a vehicle which was raised in the air by the tornado and then slammed to the ground.
The tornado also badly damaged homes and other buildings. Many people had to spend the night with family and friends in nearby areas.
Difficult words: debris (little parts of something broken), victim (a person who is injured or killed in an accident), slam (move with a lot of force).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
