Bridge Collapses in India – level 2

29-08-2017 15:00

In Bihar, India, a bridge collapsed from raging floodwater, and people were on the bridge at the time. Some people climbed up on the other side, but we do not know what happened to all of them.

Floods have killed over 250 people in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh, and they have devastated villages. People have left with only their suitcases.

Across South Asia, the flooding affected more than 16 million people. Those who had to leave are now at risk of illness, hunger, and death.

Difficult words: raging (strong), floodwater (water that covers a place in a flood), devastated (destroyed).

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