CNN: 台风“海贝思”已致72人死亡
来源:未知  时间:2019-10-30

Today's first report comes from Japan where it could be weeks before some victims of Typhoon Hagibis get back to a normal routine. Last Saturday Hagibis made landfall on the Izu Peninsula, southwest of Tokyo. It wasn't the most powerful storm to hit the Japanese mainland. Hagibis was about the equivalent of a Category 1 hurricane. But it caused so much flooding and destruction that Japan's government was planning to label Hagibis a severe natural disaster. What that would do is make the communities that were hit eligible for government funding for reconstruction.

Nearly 10,000 houses were flooding across Japan. At one point, more than half a million homes had lost electricity though that number was down to 34,000 on Tuesday. And at least 72 deaths have been blamed on the storm making Hagibis the deadliest typhoon to hit Japan in years. The country's government says 110,000 people have been deployed for the rescue effort, including firefighters, police, and members of Japan's self-defense force. Rescue efforts continue in flooded areas and the government estimates that 5,500 people are staying in shelters.

 

参考译文

 

今天首则新闻来关注日本,受台风“海贝思”影响的民众可能需要几周时间才能回归正常生活。上周六,“海贝思”在东京西南方向的伊豆半岛登陆。它并不是侵袭日本本土的最强风暴。“海贝思”登陆时的威力相当于1级飓风。但它引发了大规模的洪灾和破坏,以致于日本政府计划将其列为严重自然灾害。此举将使受灾地区有资格获得政府的重建拨款。

日本全国有近1万座房屋被淹。这场台风曾一度造成50余万户家庭断电,不过这一数字在周二下降至3.4万。“海贝思”导致至少72人死亡,这使其成为数年来肆虐日本的最致命台风。日本政府表示,包括消防员、警察和日本自卫成员在内,他们共派出11万人参与救援。遭受洪灾地区的救援行动仍在持续,政府估计有5500人在避难所避难。
