Cambodia’s coastal areas are expecting a week of medium to heavy rainfall starting tomorrow caused by Tropical Storm Bolaven hitting the coast of Vietnam.
A report from the Ministry of Meteorology and Water Resources said that Bolaven had split into two separate weather systems, with one headed to central Vietnam, close to Cambodia’s coastline.
The resulting low pressure zone will bring rain to Cambodia’s Kep, Kampot, Preah Sihanouk and Koh Kong provinces, as well as some central areas, including Phnom Penh, according to deputy spokesman for the Meteorology Ministry Mao Hak.
“On Friday and Saturday it will rain in the daytime, and from Sunday to Wednesday it will rain at night and in the early morning,” Mao said.
He added that the rain would not be severe enough to cause flooding in the affected areas, but that farmers should be vigilant about damage to their crops.
Bolaven killed at least two people in Philippines but has since weakened in magnitude. The other part of the storm made landfall in China and Russia.
