Moon Hits Cars – level 2

19-09-2016 07:00

A giant balloon in the shape of the moon was part of a festival in China. The balloon broke free in high winds, which the approach of Typhoon Meranti caused.

The moon caused chaos in the streets of the Chinese city. The moon rolled over cars. Thankfully, nobody was hurt.

People do not know if anyone caught the moon, or if it is still on the loose.

Difficult words: shape (the form of something), approach (the action of coming near), on the loose (free).

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