Hurricane Earl Moves Along US East Coast 飓风“厄尔”威胁美国东海岸 Weather officials say Hurricane Earl was moving northward off the U.S. coast, after skirting parts of the eastern Caribbean this week. 气象官员称,飓风“厄尔”在本周掠过东加勒比海部分地区之后,正沿着美国海岸线向北移动。 Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami say they are closely watching the storm for signs that it will remain in open waters, or turn west and impact the U.S. coastline. They say the outer fringes of the Category 4 storm are expected to reach the barrier islands of North Carolina by Friday. 位于迈阿密的美国国家飓风中心报告说,他们正密切关注该飓风的动向,以判断它将继续在公海活动,或向西移动而对美国海岸线造成影响。据称,这一四级飓风的外缘预计将于周五达到北卡罗莱纳州的岛屿一线。 National Hurricane Center Director Bill Reed says the storm should continue to produce very dangerous conditions in Atlantic waters as it moves north. 国家飓风中心负责人比尔· 里德称,该飓风在向北移动的过程中,可能继续在大西洋水域造成十分危险的情况。 "We are gonna have an impact in the way of dangerous swells and surf, rip currents and beach erosion as the storm moves up the coast. And even a minor shift back to the west could bring direct impacts to portions of the coastline from the mid-Atlantic northward." “飓风袭击海岸时,我们将会遭受巨浪、回流和海滩侵蚀的冲击。甚至飓风一个轻微的向西偏转,都会给中大西洋区域以北的沿海地区带来直接影响。” Emergency officials said residents in low-lying coastal areas from North Carolina to Maine should be prepared for possible evacuations in the coming days. They say residents should monitor local weather officials, who may begin issuing storm warnings as Earl moves closer to the U.S. mainland. 美国联邦紧急事务管理局官员称,在今后的几天里,居住在从北卡罗莱纳州到缅因州之间低洼海岸地区的居民应做好撤离的准备。居民应随时留意当地气象官员可能在“厄尔”进一步接近美国本土时发布的飓风警报。 ————答疑备用分割线———— off the coast: 沿海, 在(离岸边不远的)海面上 skirt: vt. 绕过...的边缘
