Typhoon in Japan
A typhoon hits Japan. Life stops in many parts of Japan. The typhoon hits Tokyo. One person dies.
Thousands of homes have no electricity. Planes cannot fly. The winds blow up to 90 miles per hour (145 kph).
Last month a volcano erupted in Japan. More than 51 people died. People still look for the survivors, but they have to stop because of the typhoon. Heavy rain is coming. They await up to 16 inches (40 cm) of rain.
Difficult words: volcano (mountain which can sometimes explode), erupt (explode), survivor (person who lives after something very bad happens).
