Thank you for downloading, streaming or just plain watching CNN 10. I’m Carl Azuz explaining world news from the CNN Center. First today, get away from the coast. That’s what a Americans in the U.S. Southeast are being told as a monster storm brews in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s name is Hurricane Florence. It’s already triggered mandatory evacuation orders for more than 1 million people in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. And Florence is uniquely dangerous. For one thing it’s powerful. Its wind speeds hovered around 140 miles per hour Tuesday.

感谢您下载,流媒体或收看CNN 10。我是卡尔·阿祖兹,在CNN中心为您播报世界新闻。今日头条新闻,远离海岸。这就是美国东南部的大西洋正在酝酿一场巨大的风暴。它的名字是弗洛伦斯飓风。北卡罗莱纳、南卡罗莱纳和维吉尼亚州的100多万人已被强制疏散。弗洛伦斯飓风异常危险。首先,飓风很强大。周二,风速约为每小时140英里。

That makes Florence a Category 4 hurricane. That makes Florence strong enough to blow the roofs off houses, knock down walls, snap most trees, take out power. The area it hits could be uninhabitable for months. For another it’s storm surge could be catastrophic. This is the abnormal rise in sea levels as a hurricane blows water ashore. A CNN meteorologist says Hurricane Florence could bring a 20 foot storm surge. That would make the tide 20 feet higher than it normally is as Florence blows in.

这使弗洛伦斯成为4级飓风。飓风,可以掀翻房屋的屋顶,推倒墙壁,折断大部分的树木,切断电力。受袭击的地区可能几个月无法居住。另一方面,风暴潮可能是灾难性的。由于飓风将海水吹向海岸而导致海平面上升异常。美国有线电视新闻网气象学家表示,佛罗伦萨飓风可能带来20英尺的风暴潮。这样一来,当弗洛伦斯吹进来的时候,潮水就会比平时高出20英尺。

The National Hurricane Center says anything more than a 12 foot storm surge is life threatening. Third, scientists tracking this storm predict it will slow down after it makes landfall. That’s a major problem as far as flooding is concerned. Last years Hurricane Harvey was a slow moving storm. It poured rain on Houston, Texas for more than a week and that caused scenes like this. Predicting exactly what storms like Florence will do is still like predicting the weather. There’s uncertainty about it. This hurricane’s wind speeds fluctuated Tuesday. Forecasters didn’t agree on whether it would still be a Category 4 storm at landfall, if it would get stronger or weaker before it blows ashore. But here’s how things looked yesterday afternoon.

国家飓风中心表示,任何超过12英尺的风暴潮都会威胁生命。第三,追踪这场风暴的科学家预测,它登陆后将会减速。就洪水而言,这是一个主要问题。去年哈维飓风是一场缓慢移动的风暴。大雨在德克萨斯州的休斯顿持续了一个多星期,引发了这样的场景。准确地预测像弗洛伦斯这样的风暴会做什么,就像预测天气一样。同时也存在不确定性。星期二,飓风的风速波动。天气预报员没有就登陆时是否仍然是4级风暴达成一致,因为尚不确定风暴在登陆前是否会变得更强或更弱。但昨天下午的情况如下。
