A big hole can swallow a house – level 1

10-06-2021 07:00

A big hole opens in Mexico. The hole is near a house. It is dangerous. The hole is 60 meters wide. The hole is 20 meters deep. Water is inside the hole.

The family from the house is evacuated. Nobody is injured. People must stay away from the area.

The hole is five meters wide when it opens. Then it grows fast.

Now, people want to study why the hole is there. The study can be 30 days long.

Difficult words: evacuate (to take people from a dangerous area), injured (you are injured when your body is broken).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
