Typhoon in Philippines – level 1

10-12-2019 07:00

On Tuesday, Typhoon Kammuri comes to Philippines. It is not very usual for this time of year. The typhoon floods streets.

The strong winds damage many houses. The winds are so strong, that officials must close the airport in the capital city of Manila. They also close schools. They move hundreds of thousands of people from their homes.

Currently, there are the Southeast Asian Games in the Philippines. The organizers cancel or postpone several events because of the bad weather.

Difficult words: typhoon (a big storm that comes from the ocean), flood (to fill streets or houses with water), postpone (to change the date of an event to a later time).

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