As roads in California are covered with floods from El Nino, one luxury car driver decided to take the waters head on when he nearly drowned his Lamborghini this week.
近日,受厄尔尼诺现象影响,美国加州多地道路洪水泛滥,一辆兰博基尼遭积水围堵,车身几乎被积水淹没,车主决定奋力突出重围。
A video uploaded to Facebook on Wednesday shows the Lamborghini - estimated to be valued around $200,000 - attempt to drive through a flooded road in San Diego.
上周三,一个上传到脸书上的视频引起围观,一辆价值约20万美元的兰博基尼在圣迭戈街头从洪水中突围。
The low-slung vehicle hesitantly approaches the large puddle, seeing other vehicles struggling through it.
看到其他车辆在低洼水坑处徘徊,这辆低底盘的兰博基尼也在犹豫。
But then the driver decides to go for it and drives through the puddle, which results in the luxury car nearly being fully submerged in water, as water covers the hood and moves up on to the windshield.
但随后车主决定驶出此处水坑,导致这一豪车的整个车身几乎全部陷入水中,水上升至车前盖甚至上升到挡风玻璃。
The car pushes through, accelerating periodically, and makes its way through the deep water.
情势十分危机,车主仍继续前行间歇踩油门加速,最终顺利冲出水坑。
Suddenly, it appears on the other side, pulls on to drier land and drives onward in the treacherous conditions.
突然,兰博基尼出现在路口另一边水位不高的地段,并保持良好状态继续行驶。
The flooding, caused by this year’s strong El Nino, has wreaked havoc around the California, closed several major highways and prompted evacuations.
此次洪水因今年的强厄尔尼诺现象引起,已肆虐加利福尼亚各地,数条主要高速公路已经关闭,并做好撤离工作。
The video uploaded to Facebook soon went viral and has more than 1,103,000 views. After Tuesday and Wednesday’s flooding, El Nino-driven storm lashed coastal areas of California on Thursday, stirring waves that flooded some low-lying streets.
该视频上传至脸书后迅速蹿红,点击量已超过110万3000,在遭遇了周二和周三的洪水后,周四因厄尔尼诺引起的暴雨又肆虐了加州沿海地区,造成海浪汹涌淹没了一些地势低的街区。
The storm created waves that forecasters said could reach 16 feet while sending scattered thundershowers across inland areas.
天气预报表示,暴雨引起的大浪有可能达到16英尺的高度,并使内陆地区有雷阵雨天气。
It came a day after the week’s strongest storm drenched the state and much of the Southwest, stopping cable cars in San Francisco, flooding roadways and stranding motorists across Los Angeles, and dumping heavy snow in northern Arizona.
这是继上周强击加州和大部分西南地区的强劲风暴天气后的又一轮暴雨天气,使得旧金山的缆车停止运作,道路被淹,洛杉矶的车辆搁浅无法行驶,亚利桑那州地区更是暴雪天气。
Indeed, most of California saw sunny skies again Thursday after days of powerful El Nino-driven storms drenched the region.
事实上,在因强厄尔尼诺引起的暴雨天气持续几天后,加州的大部分地区在周四又看到了晴朗的天气。
