Bridge Collapses in India – level 3

29-08-2017 15:00

In Bihar, India, raging floodwater caused a bridge to collapse with people on it, and we do not know what happened to all of those people. Some of them were able to climb up on the other side.

The floods have killed at least 78 people and devastated villages in Nepal. Thousands of people have fled their homes with their only suitcases. Since June, flooding and landslides killed over 250 people in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Across South Asia, the monsoons have affected more than 16 million people. The people displaced by the weather are now at risk of diseases, starvation, and death.

Difficult words: raging (very strong), devastated (destroyed), monsoon (a season when it rains a lot), displace (force people or animals to move from where they live), starvation (not having enough food).
