星期四这天，围观者们聚集在一起观看暴风的时候，台风“潭美”(Typhoon Trami)引发的60英尺高的海水，在海宁市附近的海岸 突然落下。当时并没有立刻弄清楚人们伤势有多严重，也没有任何 死亡的报告。这场台风是由于浙江省东部的暴雨和时速80英里的风 引起的，它迫使40万人离开家园，造成了数百万美元的损失。
The 60-foot wall of water — triggered by Typhoon Trami — crashed on the shore near the city of Haining，where onlookers gathered to watch the storm on Thursday. It was not immediately clear how bad the people were injured. There were no reports of any deaths. The typhoon — which caused heavy rain and 80-mph winds along the eastern Zhejiang Province — forced over 400,000 people to be evacuated from their homes and caused millions of dollars of damage.
