Water takes house - level 3

A building is swept away in a giant landslide as mud and rocks careen down a mountainside in south China's Guangxi region.

Caused by continuous heavy rains, the waterfall-like landslide covered an important highway connecting Guangxi and Southwest China.

While no casualties were reported, stranded vehicles stretched for around 2 miles, as the site was cordoned off by police.

Difficult words: careen (fall quickly), casualties (no deaths), stranded (stuck), cordon off (closed).
