If a tree falls in Siem Reap

Storm winds in Siem Reap province on Tuesday afternoon toppled a 30-metre tree, which landed on a building near the Royal Residence.

The felled tree did not cause any injuries, but damaged the building’s roof, Siem Reap Deputy Provincial Governor Bun Tharith said yesterday.

‘Luckily, no one was injured, and now we are working on removing the tree and repairing the roof,’ Tharith said, adding that previous storms have knocked down electrical poles and houses.

‘Only one tree fell down, and no homes were destroyed by the storm.’ Siem Reap has withstood multiple large storms since the rainy season began this year.

A storm in May destroyed 700 houses and left 23 utility poles damaged, leaving many parts of the province with no power.

The previous month, a multitude of houses were damaged and 20 electricity poles were brought down during a storm.
