The death toll from the Wednesday’s massive quake has risen to 13 following the three bodies were found on a walking trail through the mountainous region. The three deceased were among six people reported missing on Taroko National Park’s Shakadang Trail (砂卡礑). The teams were still working to confirm the identities of those recovered, the CEOC said, as rescuers continued to airlift trapped people in Hualien County.

  The quake, Taiwan’s most powerful in 25 years, rocked the entire island on Wednesday and was felt as far away as Shanghai and Hong Kong. 74 hours after the temblor, which measured 7.2 on the Richter scale and magnitude 7.4 on the moment magnitude scale, the CWA had recorded 603 aftershocks, including 23 that were magnitude 5 or greater. As of 2:30pm yesterday, 13 people had died and 1,145 were injured in the earthquake, while 405 were trapped or stranded and six were missing, data released by the authority showed.
  
  週三,台灣25年來最強烈的地震震動了整個台灣島,遠至上海和香港也有震感。芮氏規模7.2級、瞬間震級7.4級的地震發生74小時後,中央氣象局記錄了603次餘震,其中23次餘震為5級或以上。當局數據顯示截至昨天下午2時30分,地震已造成13人死亡、1145人受傷,405人受困或滯留,6人失蹤。

英文中,表示地震的用字會因為強度大小而有差異,最常見的字是earthquake和quake,同義字為temblor,如果是較小的地震則可用tremor來表示,aftershock則常被用來表示餘震。
stranded:(a.)滯留的

  In Hualien County, the worst-affected region, buildings buckled and landslides were triggered. Also, the aftershocks have loosened earth and made rocks continue falling intermittently. Those listed as stranded are considered safebut are cut off by landslides and other blockages on rural roads near the island’s hard-hit east coast, said the authorities, adding that the rescue mission was affected by the aftershocks and inclement weather.
  
  受災最嚴重的花蓮縣,建築物倒塌,引發山崩。同時,餘震使大地鬆動,導致岩石繼續間歇性掉落。當局認為受困民眾是安全的,但因山體滑坡和島上受災最嚴重的東海岸附近鄉村道路堵塞以致其與外界隔絕,並補充說明救援任務受到餘震和惡劣天氣影響。
  
buckle:(v.)因溫度、壓力而彎曲
trigger:(v.)引發,通常指不好的事情
intermittently:(adv.)斷斷續續地;間歇地
blockage:(n.)障礙物
rural:(a.)鄉村的
inclement:(a.)天氣惡劣的,通常指氣候嚴寒或者是有暴(風)雪的天氣

  National Airborne Service Corps helicopters flew to areas that had been cut off near Taroko National Park and were deployed to airlift 82 trapped people to safety. But bad weather limited the number of flights, forcing rescuers to focus on the most vulnerable ones and gave the priority to the elderly, the weak, women, children and people with injuries or chronic diseases.One thousand kilograms of relief supplies were airdropped to those stranded in the mountains, to ensure that they’re not left without food. Meanwhile, engineers were working around the clock to clear massive boulders from roads and tunnel entrances.

  國家空降服務團的直升機飛往太魯閣國家公園附近被切斷的地區,分批載送82人脫困,但因為天氣不佳,趟次有限,以老弱婦孺或是受傷及有慢性疾病的民眾優先下撤。特搜隊也空投1000公斤的物資給還困在山上的民眾,以確保受困者不會斷糧。同時,工程師們也晝夜不停地工作,清除道路和隧道入口處的巨大巨石。
