Phnom Penh, A villa collapsed into the water around 4:35 pm on 21 June 2016. It is not sure how many people were in the house by the time the house collapsed into the water. The house is located in Preak Leap commune, Chroy Changva district, Phnom Penh. Villagers and Police went to the scene to see if there are people in the house that need assistance.

Many houses in PP are floating on a layer of dirt several metres thick. Under that is just a slurry of mud and water. I remember a few years ago watching them drive long concrete piles for a building at Wat Phnom ,[ the radio station building ]. Once the piles were a couple of metres into the ground , they just disappeared into the slurry , under their own weight.

If that were ever to occur I will head to the beach & steal a boat. That is if I can get out from under all the bricks on my head.

That's not how it works,,,, throw a stone into a pond of water and you will see how the waves will rock the countryside up and down like a rollercoaster ride.
