Mexico City has made changes to its emergency announcement service known as 911 CDMX.
墨西哥城近来对“911 CDMX”紧急通知服务进行完善。
The service now sends messages to people’s smartphones warning them of earthquakes.
目前,这项服务给人们的智能手机发送通知地震的消息。
The changes come after a magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit Mexico’s capital on September 19. The quake killed 369 people and caused 38 buildings to collapse.
9月19日墨西哥首都发生了7.1级地震,之后人们进行了服务的完善。地震造成369人死亡,38座建筑被摧毁。
Officials announced the new smartphone program last week. Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said users of the free 911 CDMX program will receive messages for any earthquake strong enough to damage the city.
上周官员发布了新的智能手机程序。市长曼萨拉称,“911 CDMX”是款免费的手机应用程序,用户将会在任何足以摧毁城市的地震到来之际收到信息。
The program will send sound messages and cause the smartphone to vibrate.
程序会发送语音信息让手机震动。
The governmental center known as C5, for Command, Control Computing, Communications and Contact developed the program. It is available for both iOS and Android smartphone operating systems.
这家名为C5的政府中心开发了这款程序,C5指的是指令、控制系统、通讯和联络。这款程序适用于iOS和安卓智能手机操作系统。
Mancera said at a news conference there would be no demonstration of the system to avoid causing any unnecessary worry.
曼萨拉在新闻发布会上表示,没有证据表明这个系统可以避免引起任何不必要的恐慌。
“We are not interested in having anyone hear it who does not know the context in which it is being presented,” he said.
他说:“对那些听到警报却不知道事情真实情况如何的人,不在我们的考虑范围内。”
More than 20 million people live in the capital and surrounding area. Many buildings there are built on a former lake bottom. Its soil can increase the effects of earthquakes which are centered far away. Shockwaves from such earthquakes may arrive at the city later.
墨西哥及附近有2000多万人居住。许多建筑建在先前的湖床。即使是距离震中很远的地方,土壤也会增加地震带来的影响。不久地震的余震就会蔓延至城市。
Early in September, an earthquake that was stronger than the one that hit Mexico City was centered hundreds of miles away. The United States Geological survey recently changed the record of its magnitude from 8.1 to 8.2. And many people in the capital felt it strongly.
9月初,一场比袭击墨西哥城的这场地震还要强的地震爆发,震中离城市几百英里。近来,美国地质调查局将震级从8.1提升至8.2。城市的许多人都感受强烈。
Mexico City already has a system of loudspeakers that give out a warning whenever a serious earthquake is detected.
墨西哥城已经配备了扬声器系统,只要探测到严重的地震就会发出警报。
Idris Rodriguez Zapata is the general coordinator for C5. He urged residents to put the new 911 CDMX program on their smartphones. He also said they should pay attention to earthquake instructions at the moment they hear announcements on the loudspeakers or their phones.
伊德里斯·罗德里格斯·萨帕塔是C5的总协调员。他呼吁居民在手机上安装新的911 CDMX程序。他还告诫人们,一旦听到扬声器或者手机的通知,就要马上留意是否是地震的指令。
Mancera said there had been reports of people setting their smartphone ringtones to the sound of the new earthquake warning. He urged them not do so to avoid causing worry.
曼萨拉称,有报道称人们将智能手机的铃声设定为新的地震警报声。他敦促人们不要这么做以免引起恐慌。
The 911 CDMX program has other uses. It lets users see messages about earthquake activity on the website Twitter. It also can put them in contact with an emergency worker and lets them register their blood type and medical history.
911 CDMX程序还有其他用途。它可以让用户将地震活动的信息发送到推特上。还可以让人们与紧急工作人员联络、注册血型信息以及医疗记录。
