沙塵暴於周日襲擊中國北方地區,使新疆地區、內蒙古,和吉林省覆蓋了厚厚的沙塵。

Dust filled skies lowered visibility to just six and a half feet and a cold front sweeping northern China is likely to bring strong winds and low temperatures for the next two days.

漫天的沙塵讓天空的能見度降低到僅僅六呎半,而在未來兩天,一道橫掃中國北方的冷鋒,很可能會帶來強風和低溫。

Chinese media says strong winds caused fires to spread rapidly, killing three people and seriously injuring one.

中國媒體報導說,強風造成火災迅速蔓延,造成三人死亡和一人重傷。

The winds blowing over central and eastern Inner Mongolia could reach speeds of around 30 miles per hour.

在內蒙古中部和東部的風速,可達到每小時約三十英里。

Spring snows have added to farming troubles in Inner Mongolia, which saw its worst winter in 50 years.

春季降雪已增添內蒙古農業的麻煩,這是五十年來最嚴酷的冬天。

Those in the affected regions have been warned to take precautions as the severe weather approaches.

這些受影響的地區都被警告,當惡劣天氣來臨時,得要採取預防措施。
