Floods in Vietnam – level 2

17-10-2017 15:00

There are often powerful storms in Vietnam, and there are floods every year, too. This year’s floods are very serious.

Floods submerged over 16,000 homes. Yen Bai and How Bing provinces were hit the worst. Thousands of people are homeless, and forty people are dead with 40 people missing.

200,000 people had to evacuate.

Difficult words: submerge (go under water), missing (when people are missing, we do not know where people are and if they are alive), evacuate (leave an area because of danger).

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