  Mother Nature Shows Her Strength
   
  Tornadoes(龙卷风)and heavy thunderstorms moved across the Great Lakes and into Trumbull County on Saturday evening.The storms were dramatic and dangerous.

  George Snyder was driving the fire truck down Route 88 when he first noticed that a funnel(漏斗状的)cloud was behind him.“I stopped the truck and watched the funnel cloud.It was about 100 feet off the ground and I saw it go up and down for a while.It was moving toward

  Bradley Road and then suddenly it disappeared.”Snyder said.
   
  Snyder only saw one of the funnel clouds that passed through northeastern 0hio on Saturday.In Trumbull County,a tornado turned trees onto their sides.Some trees fell onto houses and cars.Other trees fell into telephone and electrical wires as they went down.
   
  Amanda Sym check was having a party when the storm began.“I knew something was wrong, ” he said.“I saw the sky go green and pink(粉红色).Then it sounded like a train rushing toward the house.I started crying and told everyone to go to the basement for protection.”
   
  The tornado caused a 10t of damage to cars and houses in the area.It will take a long time and much money to repair everything.There was also serious water damage from the thunderstorms.The heavy rains and high wind caused the power to go out in many homes.
   
  The storms caused serious flooding in areas near the river.More than four inches of rain fell in parts of Trumbull County.The river was so high that the water ran into streets and houses.Many streets had to be closed to Cars and trucks because of the high water.This made it difficult for fire trucks,police Cars,and other rescue vehicles to help people who were in trouble.Many people who live near the river had to leave their homes for their own safety.Some people reported five feet of water in their homes.Local and state officials opened emergency shelters for the people who were evacuated(撤走).’The Red Cross served meals to them.
   
  “This was a really intense storm,”said Snyder.“People were afraid.Mother Nature can be fierce.We were lucky this time.No one was killed”

  答案解析

  17.答案为A。本题的意思是:George Snyder是_位消防员。原文虽然没有直说他是干什么的,但提到他正开着消防车(fire truck),由此可以推断他是消防员。

  18.答案为B。本题可译为:暴风雨来临时Amanda Symcheck与别人正在地下室里聚会。原文是说他们正在聚会,但没说在地下室里聚会。而是说暴风雨来临后,他们跑到地下室里躲藏。

  19.答案为B。本题可译为:暴风雨中供电系统没遭到破坏。第五段最后一句说大风和暴雨使一些家庭的供电出现了问题,与题项矛盾,故选B。

  20 答案为C,o,本题可译为:一百年来,Trumbull还没有遇到过这么大的暴风雨呢。此句的意思文章中根本没有提到,故选C。
