Got a question. When a home gets flooded in the US, it’s a big deal. Carpets get ripped up, drywall gets ripped out, furniture and appliances that have been soaked are tossed out. The house get broken down to the timbers and then rebuilt due to mold concerns. Very expensive. Usually only after hurricanes.

What happens in Cambodia?

Sihanoukville: Sad news. An 18 month girl was drowned in the floods at Prey Nup last night. The family were evacuating their home when the father slipped over while carrying his daughter. She was swept away 300 meters by flood waters and drowned before they could rescue her.
RIP
