Storm Kammuri might cause floods in Cambodia

Kammuri, the 9th tropical storm since the beginning of the year might hit the Mekong basin, and particularly Laos and Thailand. According to the minister, heavier rains might cause important floods in Cambodia during the next five or six days. On Friday 8th of August at the Council of Ministers, the Prime Minister requested the National Center for Disaster Preparedness to cooperate with local institutions and authorities concerned. The army has also been asked to prepare emergency equipment like mobile-homes and speedboats, as well as medication and rice seeds to help residents living in areas which might get affected. Hun Sen has also asked the TVK television channel to regularly broadcast updated weather bulletins. On the 7th of August, the water started reaching critical levels: 9.49 m in Stoeung Trèng (1.21 m from the critical level), 19.61 m in Kratié (2.39 m from the critical level), 13.27 m in Kampong Cham (1.93 m from the critical level), 7.92 m in Phnom Penh on the Bassac and the Chaktomuk (2.58 m from the critical level), 5.54 m in Neak Loeung (1.96 m from the critical level), 6.70 m in Koh Khel (0.70 m from the critical level) and 6.66 m in Kratié (2.84 m from the critical level).
