  Typhoons (台风) in the northern part of the world have girls’ names. Sometimes they have very beautiful names. Rose is a pretty name but there was nothing pretty about Typhoon Rose. It was the worst typhoon to hit Hong Kong in ten years.
  It began to rain in the morning of Monday, August 16th, 1971. At ten o’clock in the morning, Typhoon Rose was still 130 miles away but already the wind was blowing people’s umbrella away. The wind became stronger and stronger. The typhoon shelters (避风港) were soon full of boats. Ships that were too big to go inside the shelters put down more anchors (锚). Some very big shops went out to sea. It is safer for a big shop to be at sea in a typhoon because it cannot be blown onto rocks. Kai Tak Airport closed. No planes were able to take off or land. At 9:00 in the evening, all the lights went out.
  No one slept well that night. It is difficult to sleep in such bad weather.
  In Typhoon Rose, more than one hundred people died. 229 people were hurt and 66 of these had to go to hospital. 1500 lost their homes. The people of Hong Kong will not quickly forget Typhoon Rose!

  【答案与解析】

  短文描写了一九七一年台风Rose袭击香港的情景。Rose来临之前,狂风肆虐,避风港内停满了船只,机场关闭,供电线路也切断了。台风Rose过后,造成了大量的人员伤亡,损失巨大,在香港人心里留下了深深的伤痕。
  1.D 短文首段的末句即是答案的依据。
  2.C 第三段的这两句话就是答案的出处。
  3.A 短文在列举了台风Rose所造成的巨大损失后,又说“The people of Hong Kong will not quickly forget Typhoon Rose!”。显然,他们不能忘记的原因是台风Rose所带来的损失之惨重。
  4.B 本题的答案就在“It is safer for a big shop to be at sea in a typhoon because it cannot be blown onto rocks.”一句中。
  5.C 整篇短文都是介绍台风在香港登陆前后的经过以及它所造成的损失。故答案非C莫属。
