Bad weather in the USA – level 1

21-05-2015 15:00

This happens in central US states. There is bad weather. There are many tornados. They hit large parts of the area. They destroy buildings.
After the tornados, floods and storms come. Hailstones fall from the sky. A person films this on a camera. The camera is inside a car. The hailstones fall on the car.

Difficult words: tornado (strong wind which moves in a circle), flood (big water), hailstone (a piece of ice which falls from the sky).

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

Nature, you’re scary!
