Storm Kills in Europe – level 1

22-01-2018 07:00

There are strong winds in Europe. They kill several people.

A tree falls down in the Netherlands. Two older men die. Three people die in Germany. One woman in Belgium also dies.

Someone films a shocking moment in the Netherlands. The video shows a woman with a pram. A tree falls down. Luckily, it falls right next to her. The baby and she are fine.

Now ten thousand homes in England have no power.

Difficult words: several (a few, some), pram (a baby’s moving ‘bed’), power (electricity).

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