Shocking news!

★★★★★★★★★★★★

Taiwan, hit by power outage, works to restore supply by evening.

台灣受大規模停電影響,努力要在傍晚恢復供電。

標題中的「 hit by」不是被打到,而是由某件事所產生的不良影響或打擊。

例如:

⚡ Production has been badly hit by the strike.
罷工嚴重影響了生產。

⚡
Demand for transatlantic flights has been hit by fears of terrorist attacks.
人們對恐攻的恐懼,影響了跨大西洋航班的需求。

「Work to restore supply」則是表達,努力恢復供電。
