据外媒报道,飓风“丹尼尔”10日袭击利比亚东部,引发严重洪水灾害。利东部一官员表示,东部德尔纳市洪灾遇难人数已经超过5300人。红十字会警告称,利比亚东部的特大洪灾造成的死亡人数预计将急剧上升,据报仍有至少1万人失踪。

当地时间12日,利比亚国民代表大会和利比亚民族团结政府总理阿卜杜勒哈米德·德贝巴都宣布,将哀悼三天。

The death toll from the devastating floods that struck Libya's eastern city of Derna on Sunday has risen to 5,300, while 10,000 others remain missing, according to the eastern-based Interior Ministry on Tuesday.

Ossama Hamad, the prime minister of the east Libya government, announced three days of mourning and ordered flags across the country to be lowered to half-staff.



在利比亚阿赫达尔地区,贝达、苏塞、沙哈特等城镇都受到洪水的影响,首当其冲的是有10万居民的沿海城市德尔纳,该市上游两座大坝在飓风造成的巨大水压下被冲垮,约25%的地区被摧毁。

慈善组织成员塔米尔·拉马丹估计,洪水过后可能有约1万人失踪。当地官员阿里·戈塔尼表示:“灾区没有电,通信中断,整个街区完全消失。这不仅是一场灾难,更像是世界末日!我们呼吁救援人员来到德尔纳。”当地政府表示需要6700万美元才能重建道路和桥梁。

According to media reports, assistance and rescue efforts started to reach Derna on Tuesday, more than 36 hours after the disaster hit the coastal city. The floods had either severely damaged or completely destroyed numerous access roads leading to the city, which is home to approximately 89,000 residents.

Meanwhile, Tamer Ramadan, Libyan envoy representing the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies told a UN meeting on Tuesday that he believed there were still at least 10,000 people unaccounted for in the flood-hit areas.

社交媒体上流传的图片触目惊心:城镇的街道和房屋都已不见踪影,居民们无助地看着家园被毁于一旦,尸体任由洪水席卷……目前红十字会与红新月会国际联合会正在尽力救灾,为失散的家庭寻找亲人,3名志愿者在救灾时不幸丧生。联合国儿童基金会为灾区提供了1万人份的卫生用品等物资。

卡塔尔半岛电视台报道称,一名利比亚官员表示,在过去50年的时间里,此次洪灾中被摧毁的大坝由于被政府忽视而没有得到妥善维护,当地人又习惯在河边建造房屋,种种因素叠加酿成惨剧:“这场灾难超出了利比亚基础设施的承受能力。”

The catastrophic event was triggered by a Mediterranean storm that made landfall in eastern Libya on Sunday, resulting in widespread flooding and causing extensive damage to infrastructure along its path.

President of the Libyan Presidency Council Mohamed Menfi on Monday called for international assistance to help with the aftermath of the floods, declaring the cities of Derna, Al-Bayda, and Shahhat as areas in dire need of assistance.
