>Venice submerged by tide
威尼斯潮位达50年新高
Parts of the Italian city of Venice have been left underwater after the highest tide in more than 50 years. The waters peaked at 1.87m, according to the tide monitoring center. Only once since records began in 1923 has the tide been higher, reaching 1.94m in 1966.
意大利城市威尼斯遭遇50多年来最高潮位,部分城区被淹没。根据当地潮汐监测中心的数据,潮位最高达到1.87米,系1923年有记录以来的第二高潮位,仅次于1966年曾达到的1.94米。
St Mark's Square - one of the lowest parts of the city - was one of the worst hit areas. St Mark's Basilica was flooded for the sixth time in 1,200 years.
威尼斯地势最低的地点之一圣马可广场是受灾最严重的区域之一,圣马可大教堂遭遇了1200年来的第六次水淹。
Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said the situation was dramatic. "We ask the government to help us. The cost will be high. This is the result of climate change," he said on Twitter. " A high tide of 1.87m is going to leave an indelible wound," Brugnaro said.
市长布鲁尼亚罗表示形势严峻,他在推特发文说:"我们请求中央政府帮忙。代价将非常高昂。这是气候变化的结果"。布鲁尼亚罗还表示,1.87米高的潮水将给城市留下不可磨灭的伤痕。

>Speed limit on Dutch roads
荷兰公路限速减少污染
The daytime speed limit on Dutch roads will be cut to 100 km/h in a bid to tackle a nitrogen oxide pollution crisis, according to cabinet sources widely quoted by Dutch media.
荷兰媒体广泛援引内阁的消息来源称,为了应对氮氧化物污染危机,荷兰公路上的日间限速值将降至每小时100公里。
Under the proposals, drivers would be allowed to revert to the current maximum between 19:00 and 6:00.
根据这些提案,司机只有在晚7点到早6点之间才能以目前的最高限速行驶。
Bringing the motorway speed limit down to 100 km/h would make the Netherlands the lowest in Europe, on a par with Cyprus which has far fewer motorways.
将车速限制在每小时100公里将使荷兰成为欧洲限速值最低的国家,和高速公路少得多的塞浦路斯持平。
The most common maximum speed limit in Europe is 130 km/h while in the UK it is 112 km/h.
欧洲普遍的限速标准是每小时130公里,英国是每小时112公里。
The new limit is set to come in during 2020, public broadcaster NOS reports.
据荷兰国家电视台报道,新的限速标准将于2020年执行。
