资料原文

Nobody can remember anything worse than the flooding right now in Rhode Island.
And that'sbecause it's the worst there in 200 years.
Here's more of what we know.
The rain has stopped but rivers are only slowly receding.
Homeland Security secretary, Janet Napolitano, plans to travel to the state tomorrow.
The president has already declared most of Rhode Island a disaster area.
And part of I-95 is closed and could stay that way for days as engineers inspect structural damage and even Amtrak has suspended some service in the northeast corridor.
So say you were told to grab whatever possessions you could hold in your hands and flee your home. What would you take?
Well, that's been the dilemma for flooded-out residents in Cranston,Rhode Island.
Our Reynolds Wolf is there with one man's story.
Well, Kyra, I am coming to you from Shaw Plaza here in Warwick, Rhode Island where there were only just a few puddles here a few daysago.
But it's got a raging torrent of water that's coming on through.
The flood waters not just here but throughout much of the region.
Now although we've got plenty of damage to businesses here, the stories that we've seen in some places like Cranston, Rhode Island have more of a personal side.
Yesterday, we were able to see one man's struggle against the rising waters.
Rhode Island or Eddie Flynn has called this place home for the past 10 years.But he's never seen anything like this.
Early Tuesday morning, the neighboring waters of the flooding Pawtuxet River paid him a visit.
About 7:00 yesterday morning is when I spotted it.And I'd seen all the water. I said, we're in trouble.
24 hours later, his basement was submerged.
And with waters rising higher, the rescue boats of the Cranston Fire Department came calling.
With only minutes to spare, Ed grabbed what mattered most -- his girlfriend and two puppies -- and was towed to dry land. His loss,overwhelming.
That's where I lost everything. Once they shut the pumps off, my furnace is under water, everything.

没人能够回忆起比罗德岛现在的洪水更加严重的状况。
因为这是200 年来最大的洪水。
以下是我们了解到的更详细的信息。
雨已经停了,但是河水只是缓慢地回落。
国土安全部部长珍妮特·纳波利塔诺计划明天前往该州。
总统已经宣布罗德岛的大部分地区成为灾区。
95 号州际公路部分关闭,而且会持续几天。在此期间,工程人员将检查结构损坏状况。甚至美国火车公司也暂停了东北走廊的部分服务。
那么,如果你被告知赶紧抓起你能拿的财产逃离家门,你会拿什么呢?
这就是罗德岛克兰斯敦被洪水袭击的人们的困境。
我们的记者Reynolds Wolf 就在现场为我们报道一名男子的故事。
Kyra,我现在是在罗德岛沃里克的Shaw Plaza。几天之前,这里只有几个小水坑。
而现在则是汹涌的洪水。
而且洪水不只是在这个地方,而是遍布大部分地区。
尽管大部分企业遭受损失,我们在罗德岛克兰斯敦一些地方见到的却是更加私人的一面。
昨天,我们亲眼目睹一名男子面临不断上涨的洪水的挣扎。
过去十年,Eddie Flynn 一直居住在这里,但是他从来没遇到过这样的情况。
周二一大早,附近Pawtuxet 河的洪水突然造访。
大约在早上7 点钟我发现了这一点。我看到洪水来袭。我说,我们有麻烦了。
24 小时之后,他的地下室被淹没了。
随着水位不断升高,克兰斯敦消防部门的救生艇来了。
只有几分钟的时间, Ed 抓起最重要的东西——他的女朋友和两只小狗——被带往陆地。他的损失非常大。
我在那里失去了一切。他们曾经关掉抽水机,我的家具全部被水淹没,一切都被水淹没。
