Four injured in storm in Svay Rieng

Four women sustained injuries and nearly 20 houses were damaged by a rainstorm in Svay Rieng province’s Romdoul district on Friday evening, police officials said yesterday.

The women, according to district deputy police chief Chaom Savorn, were injured when parts of their houses collapsed on them.

“The rain, along with the wind, destroyed the houses very quickly in three villages in Romdoul district’s Pong Teuk commune, which caused four women who were staying in their homes to be slightly injured,” Savorn said.

According to him, 18 houses in total were hit, and seven of them were completely destroyed.

“It was lucky that no villagers died or got seriously injured,” Savorn said.

“We often tell our people to be careful with the storms because recently it has been so bad when it rains.’’

Local authorities and police officials are currently in the area to help repair and rebuild the villagers’ houses.

A government report released late last month said that 12 people were killed, 115 people were injured and more than 7,000 houses were damaged by storms in the first six months of 2015.
