A state of disaster in the state of Texas is our first story this Friday. Thank you all for taking 10 for CNN 10. I'm Carl Azuz at the CNN Center. Imelda was the name of the storm system that is soaking parts of the Lone Star State. It formed as a tropical depression, strengthened to a tropical storm and made landfall all on the same day. That was Tuesday so there really wasn't time for people near Texas' Gulf coast to make any major preparations.

德克萨斯州的灾难是我们这周五的第一条新闻。感谢大家收看CNN 10分钟新闻。我是卡尔·阿祖兹,这里是CNN新闻中心。伊梅尔达是风暴系统的名字,该风暴系统正在淹没孤星州的部分地区。它形成了一个热带低气压,增强为热带风暴,并在同一天登陆。当时是星期二,所以德克萨斯州墨西哥湾沿岸的人们真的没有时间做充足的准备。

Still, Imelda wasn't projected to have anywhere near the impact that Hurricane Dorian had on the Bahamas earlier this month but it did cause flooding, tremendous amounts of it in Texas. And even though Imelda is no longer a tropical storm or a weaker tropical depression for that matter, conditions were still worsening yesterday for many people in southeast Texas.

尽管如此,预计伊梅尔达飓风对巴哈马群岛的影响远不及本月早些时候的多里安飓风,但它确实引发了洪水,德克萨斯州的洪水泛滥成灾。尽管伊梅尔达不再是热带风暴,也不再是较弱的热带低气压,但对于德克萨斯州东南部的许多人来说,昨天的情况仍在恶化。

In the city of Beaumont, for example, where the average rainfall is about 60 inches per year police say the city got a third of that as much as 20 inches in one night. Beaumont is in one of the 13 Texas counties where Governor Greg Abbott declared a state of disaster yesterday.

以博蒙特市为例,该市的年平均降雨量约为60英寸,警方表示,该市一晚上的降雨量是这个数字的三分之一,多达20英寸。德克萨斯州州长格雷格·阿博特昨天宣布博蒙特是该州进入灾难状态的13个县市之一。

That speeds up money and help to those in need and there are a lot of people in need. Police say they've gotten hundreds of calls for rescues. People have been trapped in homes and cars. Residents are being told not to drive because the roads are flooded and entire neighborhoods have become like lakes with houses and trees in the middle of them.

有很多人需要帮助,同时形势加剧了需要援助的人。警方表示,他们已经接到数百个救援电话。人们被困在房屋和汽车里。居民们被告知不要开车,因为道路被洪水淹没,整个社区变得像湖泊一样,房屋和树木在中间。

As what's left of Imelda moves northeast, millions of people in eastern Texas and western Louisiana were told to keep an eye out for possible flash floods. Some victims are comparing this storm to Hurricane Harvey and it certainly caused the worst flooding in the region since Harvey did this in 2017. Though that storm was considered to be an even bigger rainmaker, Imelda's threat continues with more rain in the forecast before it completely moves out of Texas.

随着伊梅尔达的剩余部分向东北移动,德克萨斯州东部和路易斯安那州西部的数百万人被告知要密切关注可能发生的山洪暴发。一些受害者将这场风暴比作哈维飓风,这无疑是自2017年哈维飓风以来该地区最严重的洪灾。尽管这场风暴被认为是一个更大的降雨制造者,伊梅尔达的威胁还在继续,在它完全离开德克萨斯之前,天气预报表示还会有更多的降雨。
