Hi, I'm Carl Azuz. Welcome to CNN 10. Your 10- minute overview of world events. We begin this March 23rd in Australia specifically the eastern state of New South Wales. It's the most populated state in the country with more than 8 million people.

大家好,我是卡尔·阿祖兹。欢迎收看CNN10.用10分钟知晓世界事。 3月23日,我们首先从澳大利亚东部的新南威尔士州开始。它是澳大利亚人口最多的州,人口达800多万。

Many of them struggled with the record bushfire season that struck in 2019 and 2020. Now they're dealing with the opposite problem, record breaking floods. More than 18.000 people have been evacuated from their homes. Thousands more could be told leave in the days ahead because increasing rainfall is in the forecast. Extreme weather like bushfires, floods, droughts and storms, that's common in Australia.

许多人在2019年和2020年创纪录的森林大火季中苦苦挣扎。现在他们正在遭遇截然相反的困境,破纪录大洪水。1.8万多人从家中撤离。在未来几天,成千上万的人也可能告知离开家园,因为预报显示降雨量将会继续增加。森林火灾、洪水、干旱和风暴等极端天气在澳大利亚非常常见。

What caused this problem according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology was the collision of two weather systems that brought tremendous amounts of rain to New South Wales. All along its eastern coast from its northern border to its southern one, the state is under a flood watch. Homes have been destroyed. Roads are underwater. Rivers have burst their banks. An Australian meteorologist says since last Thursday, some areas have seen more than three feet of rain.

澳大利亚气象局表示,造成这一问题的原因是两个天气系统的碰撞给新南威尔士州带来了大量降雨。从北部边界到南部边界,整个东海岸都处于洪水警戒状态。房屋被毁。道路被淹。河水冲破了堤岸。一位澳大利亚气象学家表示,自上周四以来,一些地区的降雨量已经超过3英尺。

That's five times what this region normally gets in the entire month of March and another two to four inches of rainfall was possible by Tuesday night. The New South Wales State Emergency Service says it's responded to thousands of calls for help.

这是该地区3月份降雨量的5倍,到周二晚上可能还会有2到4英寸的降雨量。新南威尔士州紧急服务部门表示,他们已经接了数千个求助电话。

Thousands of emergency workers and volunteers are on the ground assisting others and the states premier says the Australian military may be needed to help with the recovery. The government expects it will take a massive effort to clean up once the waters subside.

数千名紧急救援人员和志愿者正在现场协助其他救援人员。澳大利亚总理表示,灾后可能需要澳大利亚军方帮助重建。政府预计,一旦积水消退,清理工作将需要付出巨大努力。
