Water takes a car - level 1

Water takes a car - level 1

19-07-2013 06:00

It rains a lot in Colorado. The rain starts big water and mud slides. A big mud slide takes a car. A man films it.

It is bad for the car but no one is inside. Other cars are blocked. They are fine but they cannot go.

Other mud slides got into 20 houses. People must now leave this area. They can come when it is OK again.

Interesting words: mud slide (water and earth go fast together), blocked (cannot move).

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