Extreme Weather in Peru – level 2

21-03-2017 07:00

Heavy rains hit Peru and put 200,000 people at risk. People who lost their homes got help. At least 60 people died this year, and more than twelve people died in the last three days.

There is a video of a Peruvian woman stuck in a mudslide. She escapes the mudslide and then collapses. People took her to hospital. She was not seriously injured.

Difficult words: mudslide (a mass of mud), escape (get away from something), collapse (fall down).

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