Big Water in Greece – level 1
Floods hit the outskirts of Athens, Greece. Fifteen or more people die. Many of the dead are older people. Thirty-seven people go to hospital. Some people are missing.
Some people are mad at the local government. They say that the local government does not help them.
Difficult words: flood (when a lot of water comes out of a river or a lake), outskirts (the outer parts of a city), missing (we do not know where they are and if they are OK), local government (the leaders of an area).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
