Waterspout in Italy – level 1

26-11-2018 07:00

Salerno is a port in Italy. It is not far from Naples. People film a big waterspout there. No one is injured. However, some containers are thrown around. The waterspout hits the land. It gets smaller and smaller. Then it is gone.

Difficult words: port (land close to the water where ships can bring things or pick things up), waterspout (something like a water tornado, but not as strong as a tornado), container (a big box into which you put things to transport on a ship).

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