Recent pics of flooding in PP 2020

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.

That Rolls Royce pic is from Thailand a couple of years back isn't it? And what exactly are they trying to do, roll it over?
It is actually in Mumbai, and the picture of the woman in the yellow rain coat was taken in Ho Chi Minh City. It's amazing how keen people are to slag off Cambodia when the pictures aren't even from here.
Are you sure? I knew it wasn't Phnom Penh, and it's super grainy on a phone, but the guys don't look Indian at all.

Indeed, I actually copped the RR photo from TOF in post your man playboy made just the other day about the increased rain in Cambodia.

Go tell playboy how amazing and keen he is...............

As far as the "woman in the yellow rain coat" I guess you're telling @clutchcargo that he's keen to slag off Cambodia since he posted that photo?

Has the flooding on street 13 and the surrounding roads been fixed by the new drains they put in a while back?

I remember first getting here and going out after a big downpour and being unable to get into the riverside area. The other day it was fine.

What is the situation of flooding in that area these days?

The whole riverside area is quite good now. Even Psah Kandal area, which used to get totally immersed in like 1m of water, is now pretty much good. The outskirts are the worst areas now (Boeung Tompun, areas of Russei Keo, Stung Menchey etc). Still, I've seen them installing drains in those areas, so things should only get better.

You're right, it's actually in Jakarta.

Nobody was really but that's the direction these threads usually end up in. I've seen a lot of pictures floating around here and elsewhere recently that are posted as being in Cambodia but aren't. It was a dumb enough comment though. :?

I have been stopped in a few downpours out in the countryside, but that being my choice due to slippery surface and objects in the water, or I could not see the road. Thailand I was caught out like the lady in yellow, India it was deep water I walked when there was a tornado, snakes were the worry.
