Water takes a car - level 2

Water takes a car - level 2

19-07-2013 06:00

Heavy rains and flash floods caused mud slides in Colorado. A big mud slide took a car on a highway, but luckily with no one inside.

The situation was filmed and posted online. Other cars were trapped, but no one was injured.

The mud even got into twenty houses in the area and 260 people had to leave a trailer park.

Interesting words: flash floods (local surprising big water), mud slide (wet earth that goes and destroys things), trailer park (place where people live in their caravans/trailers).

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