Man drives into a tornado – level 1

15-09-2014 15:00

This happens in Russia. A man drives out of his garage. Rain falls on his car. He gets on the road, and the wind picks up.

There is a tornado! It moves the car back to the garage. It destroys the garage completely. The camera films everything.
The driver was lucky. The tornado missed his car.

Difficult words: pick up (start to blow more strongly), was (past of “be”), missed (did not hit).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Have you ever seen a tornado?
