10 Second Trivia. Which of these island chains actually belongs to Spain though it's geographically closer to Africa? Canary Islands, Azores, Falkland Islands or Cape Verde. It's off the southwest coast of Morocco you'll find the Canary Islands of Spain. 
 
10秒快速问答。这些岛链中,哪个岛屿尽管在地理位置上更靠近非洲,但实际上属于西班牙?加那利群岛、亚述尔群岛、福克兰群岛或佛得角。在摩洛哥西南海岸外,你会发现西班牙的加那利群岛。
Southwestern Morocco and Western Sahara and it's from the Sahara Desert that winds known as la calima recently lifted tremendous amounts of dust and sand and carried them west across hundreds of miles of ocean to the Canary Islands. The Spanish archipelago is a popular vacation destination for European travelers and many were stuck there over the weekend, in some cases for days longer than they wanted with worse weather than they wanted. 
 
洛哥西南部和西撒哈拉,来自撒哈拉沙漠的风被称为la calima,它最近卷起了大量的灰尘和沙子,向西穿过数百英里的海洋到达加那利群岛。这个西班牙群岛是欧洲游客的度假胜地,很多人周末被困在那里。尽管已经多停留了数天,那里天气状况依然十分糟糕。


Planes couldn't take off or land in the islands until the storm passed and outdoor sports events were cancelled to because the air quality was so bad. 
 
由于空气质量太差,若风暴继续,则飞机无法起飞或降落在岛屿上,户外运动项目也被取消。

This isn't the first time that la calima has scattered dust over the Canary Islands but a government official said it was the worst storm of its kind in decades. It also had bad timing. It came during carnival celebrations so a lot of hotels were booked with people who were also stuck indoors. 
 
这并不是la calima第一次在加那利群岛上散布灰尘,但一名政府官员称这是几十年来最严重的风暴。它的时机也不好。因发生在狂欢节期间,很多酒店已被预订,但人们被困在家中无法外出。

Flights started getting off the ground again on Monday morning when the air quality improved. 

周一早上,随着空气质量的改善,航班开始重新起飞。
