Moon Hits Cars – level 3

19-09-2016 07:00

A giant inflatable moon caused chaos on the streets of Fuzhou, China. The balloon broke free in high winds caused by the approach of Typhoon Meranti. The blow-up moon was supposed to be art for Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt as the rampaging inflatable rolled over cars. It is unclear whether people caught the moon or if it is still on the loose.

Difficult words: inflatable (capable of being filled with air), rampage (move through a place in a violent and uncontrollable manner).
