One thought on “Six people killed by Cyclone Victor

  1. Thanks Ellen … a good effort. Some of the main facts are in the introduction, but others are not told until much later in the story … can you bring them to the front? The headline is good and clear but would be better in the present tense. Perhaps you could delete people from the headline? Six die in …? we know you are still speaking of people, don’t we. And the introduction is missing ‘were’ in the phrase six people killed … to make it into a proper sentence.
