Untold numbers of Haitians are dead, trapped in rubble or missing after the country's worst earthquake in two centuries. The international community is rushing to provide emergency aid for the impoverished Caribbean nation, where as many as three million people are believed to have been affected by Tuesday's 7.0-magnitude temblor that struck outside the capital, Port-au-Prince.

自海地发生两个世纪以来最严重的地震之后,目前已经有不计其数的当地居民不幸遇难、身陷废墟或者下落不明。国际社会正在加紧对这个贫困的加勒比海国家提供紧急援助。据信星期二在海地首都太子港城外发生的里氏7.0级的地震已经影响到多达300万人。

Haiti's streets have become impromptu morgues, with grief-stricken survivors lining roads with bodies even as trapped survivors continue to scream for help.

海地的街道已经成了临时停尸房,悲痛的幸存者们把遇难者的尸体排放在路上。而被埋在废墟下的人还在不断呼救。

Frank Thorp, the husband of an American aid worker in Haiti, described the scene on NBC television's Today program.

一名在海地的美国救援人员的丈夫索普在美国全美广播公司的“今日”节目中,描述了他看到的景象。

"There are dead people," said Frank Thorp. "There are people dying on the streets. There are injured on the streets. There are so many people here that need help."

他说:“有死去的人。街上有奄奄一息的人。街上有受伤的人。这里有太多的人需要帮助。”

The national palace, Port-au-Prince's main hospital, and the headquarters of the U.N. mission in Haiti are among the thousands of structures that collapsed - inflicting a death toll that could take weeks to compile. Scores of U.N. personnel are unaccounted for.

太子港的主要医院,以及联合国在海地的总部大楼是倒塌的数千座建筑物之一,造成的死亡人数可能要好几个星期才能统计出来。数十名联合国工作人员下落不明。
