英汉解释:

原文举例:
Dozens of people remained unaccounted for Monday after the collapse of part of a 12-story residential building in Surfside, Florida, authorities have said. Search and rescue teams have been feverishly scouring the site since shortly after 55 of the building's 136 units fell on Thursday. (CNN)

英汉解释:

pancake collapse

英汉解释:
Pancake collapses are so named for the way collapsing floors land and stack as they fall; a pancake collapse is a "progressive failure" that often begins at the bottom.

原文举例:
Pancake collapses occur frequently after major earthquakes, when tremors damage the load-bearing structures in a building or bridge. These kinds of collapses aren't common in Florida, where buildings are much more vulnerable to wind damage than an earthquake, said Jeffrey Lindsey, a fire and emergency services coordinator and lecturer at the University of Florida. (CNN)

"Abundant cracking and spalling of various degrees was observed in the concrete columns, beams and walls," the survey found. "Several sizeable spalls were noted in both the topside of the entrance drive ramp and underside of the pool/entrance drive/planter slabs, which included instances with exposed, deteriorating rebar. Though some of this damage is minor, most of the concrete deterioration needs to be repaired in a timely fashion." (CNN)

For a shade under $3,000, guests can drive their supercar onto the dance floor itself and enjoy the adulation - or ignore the irritation - of the crowd. The club owners can only accommodate one car at a time so competition is fierce. (CNN)

(从高处俯视感到的)眩晕; 恐高

Hotel management are happy to offer bespoke touches such as personalized messages for birthdays that are visible as the helicopter guests arrive in. (CNN)
