Tsunami in Japan – level 1

28-11-2016 15:00

This news is from last Tuesday. There is an earthquake. It is strong. The earthquake starts a tsunami. The tsunami hits Japan. Nobody dies. Two people are a little bit injured.

The tsunami hits near Fukushima. There is a nuclear power plant there. A big tsunami hit the plant in 2011.

Difficult words: earthquake (when the earth moves), injured (if you are injured, you have a problem with your body), power plant (a big building which makes electricity).

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