Bus Overturns in Taiwan – level 3

29-09-2016 15:00

A coach carrying Japanese tourists overturned on a national highway in central Taiwan in the strong winds of typhoon Megi. At least seven passengers were injured and went to a local hospital for medical treatment. They were between 50 and 60 years old.

Typhoon Megi is the third typhoon to have recently hit Taiwan. It has killed more than four people and injured hundreds more, as well as cut power to millions of homes. Bus and subway services have been suspended in Taipei and international flights have been cancelled.

People expect the typhoon to move across Taiwan and eventually make its way to China.

Difficult words: suspend (stop something for some time), expect (if you expect something to happen, you think that it is going to happen).
