Tropical storm in Bangladesh - level 2

Tropical storm in Bangladesh - level 2

09-04-2015 07:00

A tropical storm swept across Bangladesh. It killed at least 24 people and it injured a lot more – hospitals around the country admitted 50 people.

The storm uprooted trees and damaged houses. It buried most of the victims under collapsed houses and trees. Electrical wires fell down and the electricity killed some people.

This was the first big storm of the spring storm season this year.

Difficult words: sweep-swept-swept (to move), admit (to let in), victim (a person who is killed or injured in an incident).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
