A Flood In Minas Gerais

Flood In Minas Gerais...
Flood In Minas Gerais...

Just now I watched a video about the flood in Minas Gerais.

The video was from Reuters.

Minas Gerais is in Brazil.

It was a big flood.

The colour of the flood water was brown because the water came from the river.

The water was mixed with mud.

The water moved very fast.

I saw cars washed away by the flood.

I saw a truck was washed away too.

The water was so high .

People have to bring their things because they don’t want the things destroyed in the flood.

Some people was trapped in the water and hang to lamp posts and trees because they might fall in to the water or get washed away like the cars and truck.

The rescue team used helicopter to save the people.

I think lots of buildings were damaged.

Flood is a disaster.
