Lviv Under Water – level 3

24-08-2018 07:00

Due to recent heavy rainfall and subsequent flooding in Lviv, a city in the west of Ukraine, cars and buses were submerged in around a metre of water.

The city was brought to a standstill, but firefighters rescued dozens of people trapped on buses and emergency services deployed at least 18 trucks to help commuters make it home.

Difficult words: due to (because of), subsequent (following, coming after), submerged (under water), deploy (put into use, use), commuter (a person who commutes – travels to work).
