Flood News Across the Country 2020

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Question: why, in this time of natural disaster, is it sooo hard to find daily rainfall figures?

I know Pochentong airport records it, because IAATA requires it, so why is it not publicly available?
