Floods in Vietnam – level 1
There are often powerful storms in Vietnam. There are floods in Vietnam every year, too. This year’s floods are very bad.
Over 16,000 homes are covered in water. The situation is the worst in Yen Bai and How Bing provinces. Thousands of people are homeless. Forty people are dead. Forty people are missing.
Difficult words: powerful (very strong), flood (big water), missing (we do not know where these people are and if they are alive).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
