暴风雪侵袭纽约 严重程度小于预期
NY: Snowstorm not as severe as expected

【新闻速递】美国纽约遭到强冬暴风雪侵袭,3天降雪量逼近年均降雪量。美国国家气象局之前表示,部分地区可能打破1.93米的单日降雪量纪录,且暴风雪已致5人遇难。受暴风雪影响最重的纽约、新泽西、康涅狄格、马萨诸塞、罗德岛五州已经宣布进入紧急状态。公众被告知取消一切不必要的出行,以免发生不测。而当地时间27日,“史上最大暴风雪”并未如“约”出现,风暴严重程度并未像气象局预测的“历史性风暴雪”那般严重。而官员和民众则庆幸“躲过了一劫”。不管怎样,安全就好。

The winter storm in New York turned out to be far less severe than forecasters had predicted. And amid a flood of criticisms, New York authorities and meterologists on Tuesday defended a decision to shut down America's biggest city.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city only got 10-15 centimeters of snow - just a fraction of the 60 centimeters predicted. Forecasters had said the Winter Storm Juno, which moved in on Monday, would be a potentially historic one. And the city was shut down in preparation.

Now travel bans have been lifted, public transport resumed and parks reopened. Authorities said these precautions were necessary in light of forecasts, and that weather forecasters should not be criticized.(英文文本 via CNTV)
