There are many volcanos in Chile. One volcano erupts. It sends a lot of smoke into the air.

Nobody dies, but the situation is dangerous. People must leave the area. Around 4,000 people move away.

There is a danger of lahars. Lahars are a mixture of water and small pieces of rock. Lahars come down volcanos. They destroy everything in their way. They are very dangerous.

Difficult words: volcano (a mountain which can sometimes explode), erupt (to explode; to start to be active), there is a danger of… (something bad can happen).

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