Hurricane Dorian – level 2

06-09-2019 07:00

Hurricane Dorian came to the Bahamas. The wind was very fast at almost 185 mph. The National Hurricane Center said that the sea could go up 6 to 7 metres above normal levels.

The National Hurricane Center thinks that the hurricane will destroy some houses, take off their roofs, and the walls will collapse. Trees and electricity poles will fall down and can isolate some areas. People can be without electricity for weeks or maybe months.

Unfortunately, the hurricane is moving very slowly. This is not a good thing. When a hurricane moves slowly, it becomes bigger and bigger.

Difficult words: collapse (go down), pole (a long piece of wood), isolate (when you are stuck in one place).

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