Very Hot Weather in India | level 2

1-06-2015 07:00  Level 1Level 2Level 3

Temperatures in India soared to 47°C in some parts of the country. The heat claimed 1,700 lives in just one week. It was so hot that even the roads melted.

The electricity grid was overused, and tens of thousands of people were left without power supply. Hospitals struggled to help all he people who are sick because of the extreme weather.

People should stay out of the sun, cover their heads and drink a lot of water. Cooler, rainy weather is on its way to India, but it will be weeks before the whole subcontinent cools down.

Difficult words: soar (to increase, go up), melt (to change from a solid thing to a thing that is like water), struggle (to do something difficult and to have problems doing it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
