New Delhi airport roof collapse – level 1

04-07-2024 07:00

A roff falls at New Delhi’s main airport on Friday. There is heavy rain and strong wind.

One person dies in the incident. Domestic flights stop. Officials close the terminal. They must check it for more problems. New Delhi gets 228.1 mm of rain in 24 hours. Flights are late, and metro stations close. There are big traffic jams.

The roof falls at Terminal 1, used for domestic flights. It happens only months after workers renovate it. Metal beams crush cars.  All flights from Terminal 1 stop until early afternoon.

Difficult words: domestic flight (when a plane flies within a country, not to another country), traffic jam (when there are too many cars in the streets), renovate (to repair a building).

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

What caused the delay in flights and closure of metro stations in New Delhi?
