Strong winds pummel homes in Sihanoukville

More than 80 houses were affected by strong winds in Sihanoukville’s Prey Nop district yesterday morning, an official said.

Phorn Nam, chief of Teuk Thla commune, said that hours of bad weather managed to destroy only 10 of the total number impacted.

“There was no rain, but there were strong winds from early in the morning into the afternoon that damaged residents’ houses, but no one died,” he said.

Hak San, chief of Teuk La’ak commune, said the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology had warned of storms in Sihanoukville this month, and the message had been passed down to local residents.

One resident, Chan Vann, 30, said the wind blew almost all day. “I brought my daughter to hide in the school for defence because my house‘s roof is zinc,” Vann said.
