Storm Kills in Europe – level 2
Powerful winds battered Europe on Thursday. Several people died.
Falling trees killed two older men in the Netherlands, more than three people died in Germany and one woman died in Belgium. The powerful winds also left 10 thousand homes without power in the east of England.
Someone filmed a shocking moment on a video in the Netherlands. The video shows a tree fall right next to a woman with a pram.
Difficult words: batter (hit, strike), pram (a baby’s moving ‘bed’).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
