Storm Dennis, the second-strongest nontropical storm on record in the North Atlantic Ocean, caused widespread flooding across parts of the United Kingdom this week, along with winds exceeding hurricane force.
風暴“丹尼斯”是北大西洋有記錄以來的第二大非熱帶風暴,本周造成了英國部分地區大范圍洪水,還伴有威力超過颶風的大風。
The storm, which is producing waves up to 80 feet tall west of the United Kingdom, dumped more than five inches of rain in South Wales, almost an inch more than the area typically receives for the entire month of February. The resulting flooding has prompted numerous evacuations and even cut off some communities.
風暴使英國西部的海浪高達80英尺,南威爾士降雨量超過5英寸,比該地區平時二月份整月的降雨量幾乎多出1英寸。風暴造成的洪水導致大量人員撤離,一些地區甚至和外界隔絕了。

The U.K. Met Office, which named the storm, issued its first “red” warning for heavy rainfall since 2015, its highest warning category. The country’s Environment Agency issued a record number of flood warnings, 594, for a single day, according to John Curtin, executive director of flood and coastal risk management at the Environment Agency.
為此次風暴命名的英國氣象局在2015年以來首次發布強降雨“紅色”警報,也是最高等級的警報。英國環境部負責洪水與海岸風險管理的管理總監John Curtin說,環境部發布了創紀錄的單日洪水警告數值——594。
While the rainfall totals were noteworthy, they were not uNPRecedented. However, coming just one week after another severe bomb cyclone, known in the United Kingdom as Storm Ciara, the ground was already saturated when this one arrived. This caused many rivers, creeks and streams to overflow their banks and even triggered landslides.
雖然總降雨量值得注意,但這種情況也不是前所未有。但是該地一周前剛發生了嚴重的炸彈旋風,英國稱之為風暴“西亞拉”,這次風暴登陸時該地本就一片狼藉。此次風暴造成很多河流、小溪漫過堤岸,甚至引發了山體滑坡。
Several severe flood warnings were issued, meaning the conditions posed life-threatening danger. Gwent County police said residents of Skenfrith, Monmouthshire, were advised to evacuate because of the flooding.
政府發布的幾次嚴重的洪水警報意味著人們的生命安全已受到威脅。格溫特郡警察說建議將會受洪水影響的蒙茅斯郡斯肯孚里爾的居民撤離。
