Hawaiian Volcano Destroys Homes – level 2

11-05-2018 15:00

Lava continues to flow from fissures in Hawaii’s volcano. It has destroyed five homes. Despite the danger, some residents do not want to evacuate.

One resident said that living on Hawaii is both good and bad because the place is beautiful, but people are living on an active volcano. Another resident said that the lava filled up the area in about three hours.

Scientists think that lava will continue to come from the volcano, but they are unsure where or when this will happen.

Difficult words: fissure (a deep crack in the ground), resident (a person who lives somewhere), evacuate (leave to get away from danger).

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