Officials warn of storms on the upper Mekong

THE Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology is warning people living along the Mekong River and in regions of the northeast to brace for violent storms over the coming days, as low-pressure weather systems cross into Cambodia from Thailand and Laos. Mao Hak, director of the Ministry’s Department of Hydrology and River Works, said yesterday that Oddar Meanchey, Siem Reap, Preah Vihear, Kratie, Stung Treng, Ratanakkiri and Mondulkiri provinces can expect storms until the end of the month. “It will bring massive rains that might flood people’s homes and farms in areas along the upstream Mekong River and northeast areas,” he said.
