2014-03-24    来源:voanews    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

A massive landslide in the western U.S. state of Washington has killed three people and left 18 others unaccounted for.
美国西部的华盛顿州发生大规模泥石流,3人死亡,18人失踪。

Authorities say a wall of mud, trees and rocks cascaded down a mountainside in a rural area north of the major city of Seattle on Saturday, demolishing as many as 30 houses in its path. Eight people were injured.
有关当局说,星期六在西雅图市以北的乡村地区,像高墙一样的泥石流夹带着树木和岩石从山的一侧倾泻而下,沿途冲毁了30所住房。还有8人受伤。

Rescue workers heard voices crying for help and searched through the night into Sunday for survivors. But authorities said the rescuers were unable to reach some areas because the mud was still moving and was "like quicksand."
救援人员听到呼救的声音,为找到幸存者他们从夜里一直搜寻到星期天。但是当局说,救援人员无法抵达一些地区,因为泥石流仍然像流沙一样在流动。

One motorist described seeing the mudslide.
一位开车的司机形容当时的情景时说:

"I was the third car behind a truck with a boat. I saw the darkness washing everything off the road. I am not sure that truck made it through."
“前面有辆卡车,车顶上载着一条船,我是跟着这辆卡车后面的第三辆汽车。我看到一个黑影扫过,然后前面所有的车都不在道路上了。我不清楚那辆卡车开过去没有。 ”

Officials blamed the mudslide on groundwater saturation after recent heavy rainfalls.
官员们说,近日来连下暴雨,地下水饱和,引发了泥石流。
