Flash floods ahead: gov’t

The Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology has announced that a low-pressure system will lead to heavy rains in virtually every province in the coming days, as well as flash floods in a number of areas flanking bodies of water.

In a notice sent yesterday to local authorities, Minister Lim Keang Hor urges caution ahead of the rains.

“This will affect the Kingdom, with scattered rain almost throughout the country from September 6-11 and flooding in some provinces/municipalities, such as in the northeast, some provinces around the Tonle Sap lake, sea areas and along the National Road 4,” the note reads.

The ministry’s notice comes at a time when the Cambodia National Rescue Party is preparing for a large-scale non-violent demonstration to be held in Phnom Penh’s Freedom Park on Saturday.

Party officials yesterday insisted they would not be deterred by bad weather and would disseminate the information to its supporters.

“They can bring their raincoats or umbrellas with them,” said Ky Van Dara, the general director of finance at the CNRP.
