Flooding: Parts of Phnom Penh under water today

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.

28 January 2018
Phnom Penh: Heavy rainfall caused flooding in the streets in Chom Chao 3 commune, Por Tu district. Senchey Phnom Penh this morning.
Officials said that the reason for the flooding is likely to be blocked drains, and that it is fortunate that this occurred on a Sunday when there are no traffic jams.

If today's rain's considered 'heavy rains' they better prepare their shores for August....

Weird to get flooding in January although I did notice a bit of a heavy downpour last night. Many of those areas in the outlying districts are outside any dikes and aren't sufficiently backfilled/ shored up.

It followed the same pattern in the capital. Rather strange weather in recent years, at least compared to the previous decade or so.

Was teeming down this morning for quite a while in the Orussey area.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

We had steady rain around the royal palace are but I wouldn’t have thought it big or strong enough to cause that amount of flooding.

I agree with JB, the last few years the weather has been downright weird compared to previous years.
