新奥尔良灾民对救援不满(一)

Hurricane Victims Express Anger, Frustration

  Five days after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the U.S. Gulf of Mexico coast, residents of the flooded city of New Orleans are expressing anger and frustration at the slow pace of recovery. The mayor of the stricken city is demanding immediate action.

  在美国墨西哥湾沿岸遭到卡特里娜飓风袭击5天之后,受到洪水侵袭的新奥尔良市居民对救援速度缓慢表示愤怒和不满。新奥尔良市长要求有关方面立即采取行动。

  Tens of thousands of evacuees from New Orleans have been pouring into Baton Rouge and other nearby areas with stories of chaos, suffering and violence. Many of them praise the relief efforts at huge shelters set up by federal and state officials, but they express dismay over the continuing anarchy in the city they left behind.

  成千上万的人从130公里外的新奥尔良涌进巴吞鲁日和附近地区,他们经历了混乱、艰辛和暴力。很多人赞扬联邦政府和州政府官员在大型庇护所中做出的救援努力,不过他们对新奥尔良的无政府状况表示震惊。

  In a telephone interview with local radio station WWL, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin challenged both President Bush and Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco to bring his city more help.

  新奥尔良市长纳金在接受当地一家电台电话采访时,要求布什总统和路易斯安那州州长布兰科为新奥尔良提供更多的援助。

  "God is looking down on all this, and if they are not doing everything in their power to save people, they are going to pay the price, because everyday that we delay, people are dying, and they are dying by the hundreds, I am willing to bet," said Mr. Nagin. "We are getting reports and calls that are breaking my heart from people saying, 'I have been in my attic, I cannot take it any more, the water is up to my neck, I don't think I can hold out'."

  他说:“上帝正在注视着一切,如果他们不尽一切努力来救援人民,他们将会付出代价。因为我们每延误一天,都会有人死亡,我敢打赌,会有大批人死亡。我们接到报告和电话说:‘我在我家的阁楼上,我受不了了,水已经到我的脖子了,我坚持不住了。’我真是感到心痛。”
