Trees go under water - level 2
An underwater sinkhole in a Louisiana swamp consumed a small group of trees. Some people filmed it.
At first, the trees were slowly moving down but then it all got faster. The trees were all soon completely under the surface. We think that the sinkhole was created after an underground cave fell down. The sinkhole is approximately 25 acres wide. Local residents have been asked to evacuate.
Difficult words: swamp (area where water stops), consume (eat), cave (natural space in the ground), evacuate (get away).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
