Hurricane Dorian – level 1

06-09-2019 07:00

Hurricane Dorian comes to the Bahamas. The wind is very fast. It is185 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center says that the sea can go up 6 to 7 metres high. It is dangerous.

The National Hurricane Center thinks that the hurricane can destroy houses. The wind can take the roofs. The walls can collapse. Trees can fall on the roads. They can block some towns and villages. People can be without electricity for weeks or maybe months.

The hurricane is moving very slowly. This is a bad thing. When a hurricane moves slowly, it gets bigger and bigger.

Difficult words: destroy (break into many pieces), collapse (go down), move (change a position).

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