There is a new video. It is from the Philippines. It shows a typhoon. The typhoon is very strong.

A man films this video. He is on the top of a house. His video is shocking. A lot of water takes a house. Land gets under water in 30 seconds. The wind is very fast. The wind speed is 170 miles per hour (273 kilometers per hour).

The man survives. When the storm ends, he helps other people.

Difficult words: typhoon (strong storm), survive (live), storm (bad weather).

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