当地时间周日晚间,一场龙卷风袭击了美国密苏里州乔普林小镇。这已经不是美国中部,或者密苏里州在今年遭受的第一次龙卷风袭击了,但这场正面袭击了这一人口仅5万小镇的龙卷风却成了美国64年以来夺取生命最多的龙卷风。目前已知的死亡人数高达116人,另有1500名救援人员正在紧张地搜寻失踪人口。

造成死亡人数如此之高的原因不仅是这场龙卷风的威力巨大,也部分归咎于其来势凶猛,当地居民只有20分钟做准备。再加上这一地区之前就常常响起龙卷风警告的警笛声,但很少真的遭到袭击,大部分龙卷风都会与小镇擦肩而过。因此上周日当人们再次听到警笛时,不少人并没放在心上,以为又是一场误报,结果很多人没来得及躲到室内。据美国气象局报道,这场龙卷风的最高时速达到了198英里(约319公里)每小时。

截至目前为止,已经有近500美国人在今年因龙卷风而丧生。下面是一些乔普林镇灾后的照片(转自每日邮报):
