Hotel Collapse – level 3
In New Orleans, Louisiana, a Hard Rock Hotel was under construction when a large section of it toppled to the ground and injured 18 people.
Two people died and one went missing at the site. People evacuated buildings near the hotel because it was unstable.
The Fire Superintendent said that firefighters were trying to find the missing person. Rescue crews will help look for the person before they look for the victims.
The Louisiana governor said that the situation is fluid and dangerous, as things continue to fall off of the hotel.
Difficult words: topple (fall quickly and suddenly), superintendent (an official of an agency), fluid (changing constantly).
