Extreme Weather in Peru – level 1

21-03-2017 07:00

It rains a lot in Peru. Around 200,000 people are in danger. They lose their homes. They have no food. Rescue teams help them. Sixty people die this year.

There is a new video. It shows a woman. She is in a mudslide. She escapes. She is extremely tired. She falls down. People take her to hospital.

Difficult words: rescue team (a group of people who help other people), mudslide (a mix of water and dirt/ground which moves and breaks things), escape (get away from something).

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