Moving to another coast now. Rescuers are scouring homes in southern Mexico. They're looking for survivors after a tremendous earthquake struck about 74 miles offshore on Thursday night. With a magnitude of 8.1, the tremor was capable of destroying entire towns.

下面来看发生在另一海岸的新闻。救援人员正在墨西哥南部的居民区进行搜寻。周四晚间,距离海岸约74英里处发生强震,目前救援人员正在搜寻幸存者。此次地震为8.1级,强度足以摧毁整个城镇。

On average, the world only sees about one quake this powerful every year. Mexico hasn't had a tremor like this for a century. It struck an impoverished area. There were multiple aftershocks. And government officials say it killed dozens of people. Many in the region were asleep when the quake struck near midnight.

 

 

一般来说,全球每年只会发生一次这样强大的地震。这是一个世纪以来墨西哥发生的最严重一次地震。此次地震发生在一个贫困地区,并伴有多次余震。官方表示,此次地震造成数十人死亡。地震发生于午夜时分,当时许多人已经入睡。

It was felt hundreds of miles away, in places like Mexico City, in Guatemala City, and it generated a tsunami, a massive ocean wave that measured almost six feet in one area. Mexico's military and police are helping the search for survivors and distribution of medical supplies.


数百英里以外的地区,如墨西哥城、危地马拉城均有震感。此次地震还引发了海啸,某一地区的海浪高度甚至达到6英尺。墨西哥军方和警方正在帮忙搜寻幸存者,以及分发医疗用品。
