    Smile natural?

    Hello

    I'd like to know whether these following sentences, whose subjects are not persons, are naturally used or too formal.

    1) This road will lead you to the city hall.
    2) A twenty-minute walk will take you to the station.
    3) The typhoon prevented us from going out.
    4) Your help enabled me to finish this project sooner.
    5) The weather forecast says that it will rain tomorrow.

    Thank you.

    I'd change #1 to 'will take you'.

    'Lead' is fine for me. Nice sentences, Lina.
