PM Hun Sen urges flood precaution

Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday urged greater attention to flood risks this year, asking the meteorology ministry and TV and radio stations to provide weather forecasts as often as possible.

Noting the the Year of the Dragon’s reputation for floods, the premier told people along the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers to be careful and ready for evacuation.

Kampong Thom provincial disaster management director Em Saroeu, however, said “it will not be a big problem this year, because we have prepared for the situation”.
