Serbia Floods – level 1

29-06-2020 07:00

In Europe, there are heavy rains. Some parts of Europe have big problems with floods. The worst situation is in Serbia and Herzegovina.

In 2014, big floods happen in both countries. Serbia and Herzegovina spend a lot of money. They build safer bridges. They make better riverbanks.

However, it does not help. Floods come again. In Serbia, 70 people must leave their homes. Rivers flood about 700 houses. Water takes some houses away. The houses crash into a bridge.

Landslides happen in Herzegovina. Serbian officials are afraid of landslides, too. Serbia is in an emergency situation. The country also has big problems with the coronavirus.

Difficult words: flood (when rivers have too much water, and the water gets into streets and houses), riverbank (the land on the sides of a river), landslide (when earth and rocks move down a hill), emergency (a serious situation when people can get hurt or die).

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