People in Moore, Oklahoma, are starting to rebuild after a three-kilometer-wide tornado hit the city on Monday. Officials say the storm killed 24 people in Moore and nearby areas. More than 200 others were injured.
周一,一场直径三公里的龙卷风袭击俄克拉荷马州摩尔,目前这里的人们正开始重建。官方称摩尔和附近地区有24人丧生,200多人受伤。

President Obama declared a major disaster in Oklahoma. His declaration freed up federal money to help state officials with the recovery effort. Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin deployed the state National Guard and extra police to assist with rescue operations. She described the tornado as one of the "most horrific" disasters her state has ever faced.
总统奥巴马宣布俄克拉荷马州发生重大灾难,从而筹措了联邦资金来帮助州官员应对重建工作。俄克拉荷马州长玛丽·法琳派遣州国民警队和其他警察前来援助救援工作,她说这次龙卷风是本州遭遇过的“最可怕”灾难。

"In many places, homes were absolutely destroyed, taken away. There's just sticks and bricks, basically. It's hard to tell if there was a structure there or not. If you get into some of the major neighborhoods, you can't tell where the streets were. The street signs are gone. And that's been a big challenge for us -- being able to determine which area of a community we might be in because the streets are just gone, the signs are just gone."
“很多地方的房屋被彻底毁坏,被卷走了。基本上只剩下木棍、砖头了,有没有房屋框架还很难说。如果到一些主要社区里,是无法看出是哪条街的,因为路牌已经不见了。这对我们来说是一大挑战,因为路牌都没有了,我们很难判定是在哪个社区。”

Weather experts say the tornado had wind speeds of at least 322 kilometers an hour. It left a path of destruction stretching close to 30 kilometers. The storm flattened large parts of Moore, a city of 60,000 people. A record-setting tornado hit Moore in May of 1999.
天气专家称这次龙卷风的时速至少322公里,造成的破坏面绵延30公里。这场风暴使摩尔这个拥有6万人的城市大部分地区夷为平地,1999年5月摩尔发生一次创纪录的龙卷风。

On Monday Alfredo Corrales crowded into a small underground shelter with his family and a neighbor.
周一,阿尔夫雷多·科拉莱斯带着家人和一名邻居挤进了一个地下小避难所。

"Me and the neighbor were just holding on to the hatch, just to keep the door secure. And that wind was blowing over, and the wind was just sucking up on the door. And when it was doing that, the rain was just shooting down into the cellar."
“我和邻居抓着安全门,确保门是安全的。风吹过时将门吸了过去,就在这时,大雨就落入地窖中。”

The storm hit two elementary schools just as students were preparing to leave for the day. Both schools were crushed, leaving many children trapped in the wreckage.
这场风暴袭击了两所小学,当时学生们准备放学。两所学校都被毁了,许多孩子被困在废墟中。
