**热带风暴“艾萨克”再度减弱**

美国气象预报人员把热带风暴“艾萨克”降级为低气压,但同时警告说,美国南部地区所面临的威胁还没有消失。

美国国家飓风中心说,“艾萨克”星期四经过路易斯安那州北部,风力已经减弱。预计,“艾萨克”向北移动的过程中还会带来降雨。气象预报说,到星期五为止,路易斯安那州、密西西比州、阿拉巴马州和阿肯色州某些地区的降雨量可能多达63厘米。

美国国家飓风中心警告说,路易斯安那州东南部和密西西比州可能还会发生洪水,并可能出现龙卷风。

气象预报人员目前正在密切监视一个代号为“柯克”的热带风暴。

**Isaac Weakens Again**

U.S. weather forecasters have downgraded Tropical Storm Isaac to a depression but warn the danger to the southern United States from the system is not over.

The National Hurricane Center says the slow-moving Isaac weakened over northern Louisiana Thursday. The system is expected to produce more rain as it moves toward the north. Forecasters say isolated parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas could get as much as 63 centimeters of rain through Friday.

The hurricane center warned there could still be more flooding across southeastern Louisiana and Mississippi and that tornadoes are possible.

Forecasters are now keeping a close watch on another tropical Storm Kirk.

**罗姆尼保证“重树美国的希望”**

美国共和党总统候选人罗姆尼在共和党全国大会上接受本党提名,保证要“重树美国的希望”。

星期四晚间,罗姆尼对共和党全国大会代表以及众多美国电视观众发表演讲。罗姆尼说,他希望奥巴马总统获得成功,因为他希望美国获得成功。可是,罗姆尼说,奥巴马的承诺“归于失望和分裂”,而美国人民理应得到更好的结果。

罗姆尼说,如果自己当选总统,将实施一项五步计划来发展经济并创造1200万个就业机会。

罗姆尼还承诺在全球外交事务中减少弹性,更坚守原则,同时更忠实于以色列等美国盟友。

罗姆尼还向女选民做出姿态,赞扬出席大会的共和党女领导人,并谈到在他担任麻萨诸塞州州长期间,曾有一名女副州长和一名女办公室主任,而且半数州政府高层官员都是女性。


** Romney Vows to Restore 'Promise of America'**

U. S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has accepted his party's nomination, pledging to "restore the promise of America."

Mr. Romney addressed the Republican National Convention and millions of Americans watching on television late Thursday. He said he wished U.S. President Barack Obama had succeeded, because he wants the U.S. to succeed. But, Mr. Romney said, the president's promises instead "gave way to disappointment and division," and Americans "deserve better."

Mr. Romney said that if elected president, he will use a five-step plan to grow the economy and create 12 million jobs.

Mr. Romney also promised "less flexibility and more backbone" in global diplomacy, along with "more loyalty" to U.S. allies such as Israel.

The presidential candidate even appealed to women voters by praising the Republican female leaders in attendance and by pointing out that, as governor, he had a woman as lieutenant governor, a woman chief of staff and women in half of his senior posts.
