Save the Ancient City
抢救古城

ANCHOR
We begin with a look at the floods that are threatening cities and towns across Europe. Dozens of people have been killed by swelling rivers in Germany, Austria, Russia, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. The situation is particularly difficult in the Czech capital, tens of thousands of people are being evacuated from Prague, which is facing the worst flooding in more than a hundred years. The river Voltava is nearing the top of the city's medieval embankments. Robin Kurno has more now on the floods.

让我们首先把目光投向威胁欧洲城镇的洪水。德国、奥地利、俄罗斯、瑞士和捷克已经有数十人死于这场汹涌的灾难。捷克首都布拉格的情势尤其严重,已经有数万人流离失所,他们面临的这次洪灾是百年不遇的。伏尔塔瓦河水位已经接近布拉格中世纪修建的堤岸的顶部。罗宾·库尔诺现在为您详细报道灾情。

These buildings in Prague's city center were built in medieval times, they have stood for centuries. But now much of this historic part of the city is expected to be swallowed up by a deluge of water. Other parts are already submerged. This is worst flood in the Czech Republic for more than a century. Almost 50,000 people have been ordered to evacuate the capital and surrounding areas. But many are refusing to go, risking be trapped by the rising waters.

这些位于布拉格市中心的建筑物始建于中世纪,已经屹立了好几个世纪。但是如今,布拉格城这块历史古迹的大部分可能都会被肆虐的河水吞噬。另外一部分已经被洪水淹没。这是捷克一个多世纪以来遭遇的最严重的洪灾。大约有5万人被要求撤离布拉格及其周围地区。但是许多人不愿意走, 宁愿冒着被困在不断上涨的洪水中的危险。
