Tropical Rain Storms Cause Massive Flooding in Sihanoukville, Cambodia

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.

its worse!! the bleeding pipe acts as dam stopping the water running into the road now called Pub street, then the sea.....
There's a reason New Pub Street floods, the "developer" decided it would be a cunning wheeze to save money if he put in 32mm drain pipes, rather than 100.

The road right outside Apple guest house no longer holds back 100m of water causing a big puddle as the road was resurfaced in the dry(well almost dry its rained every month this year so far) season taking away the damming effect caused by the earlier pipeline and speed bump. Its almost flat there until the road to the new pub street sign where it dips. further along though there is still places where a lot of water lies- but only a few inches deep.
