Downpour: 倾盆大雨
Updated:2005-08-02 14:22

  暴风雨已在印度肆虐了一周多,成为印度自1846年以来遭遇到的最强的一次暴雨袭击,孟买等地的洪水灾情一直没能得到缓解。截至8月1日,洪灾造成的全国死亡人数已突破1千人。外电报道如下:Nearly a week after record rains fell on Mumbai, the Indian financial center was fighting misery on different fronts as new downpours hindered cleanup efforts.

  News services reported that rain was pounding the Mumbai area again on Monday. Authorities said 1,000 people had died in western India.

  The city formerly known as Bombay was deluged with 37 inches (940 millimeters) of rain in 24 hours Tuesday -- the most any Indian city has ever received in one day.

  Downpour意为“倾盆大雨;暴雨”,其近义词是cloudburst(倾盆大雨,豪雨)。据悉,联合国已协调各人道机构向印度提供紧急救助。儿童基金会、开发计划署、世界粮食计划署和世界卫生组织等机构已向印度灾民提供了食品、纯净水、药品、毛毯和帐篷等紧急物资。
