Much rain in Sihanoukville

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

A Khmer friend warned us today that there is a lot of rain due in PP in the next three days, and that the risk from the rain is flooding/hygiene related. Apparently there were outbreaks of fevers after the flooding a couple of weeks ago, so who knows?

Sunshine today in Snooky, but weather forecast says heavy rain in the near future.

I think its due to a typhoon coming from the Philippines, should be going on until the 21st.

Again, where is the MOST reliable source of weather info on the net for the area? A typhoon in the Philippines can cause monsoons in SE Asia...

Wunderground? Accuweather? Weather.com?

The husband of a girl I work with is a local fisho and is pretty good at predicting the weather ( ok, take any weather prediction with a grain of salt obviously !) She came in yesterday and told me "Too much big wind in Vietnam, too much big rain in Thailland. They start boxing over Sihanoukville tonight". Hopped on my moto to ride home at 1am this morning and the fukn skies opened BIG time! She reckons it should all be over by "22 day". I bloody hope!
