摘自china daily。。。。

A magnitude-5.1 earthquake centered in northern Orange County rippled across the Los Angeles Basin, and preliminary indications suggest the long-feared Puente Hills thrust fault may have caused it.

集中在奥兰治县北部的5.1级地震波及到了洛杉矶盆地,初步迹象表明这次地震可能是由长期令人畏惧的朋地山逆冲断层引起的。

The quake caused pictures to fall of walls, glass items to shatter and furniture to tumble down in some homes near the epicenter. There were also reports of some gas and water line damage as well as scattered power outages.

地震使得震中附近的一些房屋里照片离墙摔落,玻璃物品破碎,家具破损。也有一些报道称不仅有部分天然气与自来水管道破坏,而且有分散的停电现象。

At a home in San Dimas, dozens of pictures flew off walls, a ladder fell and dented a car in garage and medicine cabinets flew open and emptied out. In Orange, a few miles to the east of the epicenter, patrons at a BJ's pub went from boisterous conversation to tense silence. The suspended LED lights swayed. The vodka behind the bar stayed where it was. When the quake was over, the room erupted in applause.

在圣迪马斯的一间房屋里,几十张照片离墙而落,一架梯子倒向车库里的一辆汽车,医药箱飞落而开,医药用品散落一地。在奥兰治县,离震中东部几英里处的一家BJ酒吧里,顾客由喧闹的谈话变成了紧张的沉默。悬浮的LED灯摇晃着。酒吧后面的伏特加酒保持着它原来的样子。当地震结束时,房间里响起了热烈的掌声。

At Disneyland, some rides were shut down as a precaution, according to guests there. Los Angeles officials said they had no reports of damage in the city.

在迪士尼乐园,据当时顾客所说,由于预先警告,一些游乐设施被提前关闭。洛杉矶官员说道,在本市无伤害性的报道。

Brea police said there were some minor injuries during a rockslide in Carbon Canyon, which caused a car to overturn. Carbon Canyon Road is closed, police said.

布瑞亚警察说,在卡本峡谷,一次岩石塌方造成了一些轻微受伤事件,其中一辆汽车翻车。警察说道,卡本峡谷公路已被关闭。

The main shock hit at 9:09 p.m. near Brea, with the epicenter only about 2 to 3 miles underneath the surface, which “means the shaking is very concentrated in a small area,” Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson said.

加州理工学院的地震学家Egill Hauksson说,布瑞亚附近的主要的冲击发生在晚上9:09,地震中心离地表仅2-3英里。这就意味着在小范围内,这次震动是非常集中的。

The very first indications are that the quake is “related to the Puente Hills thrust fault, which caused the Whittier Narrows earthquake back in 1987. That may change over time as we look at the data,” Hauksson said.

Hauksson说,第一个迹象表明这次地震与朋地山逆冲断层有关,1987年的the Whittier Narrows地震就是由其引起的。依照我们了解的数据,随着时间的推移,这可能会改变。

The 1987 earthquake was a magnitude 5.9 temblor that killing eight people and injured several hundred. It also caused $358 million in damage. More than 100 single-family homes and more than 1,300 apartment units were destroyed.

1987年的地震是一场5.9级地震。它造成800人遇难,几百人受伤,直接损失达$358 million。超过100户私家住宅与1300栋公寓在这次地震中倒坍。

希望大家多多指教。。。@xuyuting8000 @ydyinglluk @Medical20 @桃子Lynn @日薄渐起 @xuejv813 @cherryvenus @敏敏92
