Two tornadoes - level 1

Two tornadoes - level 1

23-06-2014 15:00

This news is from Nebraska, USA. Two tornadoes hit the state. Locals must go away. The tornadoes destroy half of one town. They destroy some farms, too. One person dies. Sixteen people are injured.

The winds inside the tornadoes are very fast. Their speeds are 165 miles per hour (266 kilometres per hour). The state is in danger. Police close roads which are not safe.

Difficult words: locals (people who live in a specific place), destroy (break completely), injured (they have problems with the body), to be in danger (to have serious problems).

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