A rare blast of winter weather has paralyzed much of eastern Asia, with temperatures falling to record lows in places accustomed to much warmer conditions. A combination of snow, sleet and winds forced officials to cancel hundreds of flights and shut down schools.  Scores of people--many of them elderly--are reported dead from the effects of the cold weather in Taiwan and Japan.

rare:罕见的

blast :一阵(风)

paralyze:使……瘫痪

sleet:雨夹雪

cancel:取消

 

 一股冬季罕见的寒潮使大部分东亚地区几乎陷入瘫痪,相对同期以前较为温暖的天气情况,一些地区的温度记录跌破历史极值。由于一系列的大雪,雨夹雪和大风,官员取消了数百个航班,学校也被迫停课。在台湾和日本,许多人(大部分是老人)因为此次严寒天气的影响而失去生命。
