文字稿:

Think of Venice and water probably springs to mind.

The problem is that unusually high tides often cause serious harm to its centuries-old architecture, which draws millions of visitors each year.

Now, four new mobile barriers designed to protect the city have been successfully tested.

Eventually, 78 floodgates will shut off the Venice lagoon when water levels get too high.

Vocabulary 词汇:

springs to mind 突然浮现在脑海里

high tides 高潮

draws 吸引

designed 专门设计

floodgates 防洪
