Tropical Storm Vicente expected this week

The Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology are asking residents living in northern, northeastern and coastal areas to monitor the movement of Tropical Storm Vicente, which is expected to reach Cambodia between tomorrow and Thursday.

The ministry forecasts heavy rainfall in provinces such as Preah Vihear, Stung Treng, Ratanakkiri and Mondulkiri, and downpours, high winds and high waves in coastal provinces such as Koh Kong, Preah Sihanouk, Kampot and Kep.

Ministry deputy director Um Rina predicted difficult fishing and travel, saying “precaution must be taken to avert problems”.

Sbong Sarath, provincial governor of Preah Sihanouk, also projected downpours, adding that “the fishermen are likely more knowledgeable than we the officials”.
