Prime Minister Hun Sen on Monday said that the kingdom is facing some bad weather because of tropical storm Kestana and other storms.
At least five storms will soon hit Cambodia, he said at the opening ceremony of the new tourism ministry headquarters.
The premier noted that last week a storm flattened over 90 houses in Kampong Chhnang province. The Mekong River water level is also high, he said.
Now we are affecting with the Kestana storm, he said, adding that he also appealed to local people to be cautions about the storm wind and other storms, heavy rains hitting the country which could damage their properties and life.
“So far [this year] we have affected with at least 20 storms,” he said.
In a letter to the nation, the premier appealed to ministries to help people to deal with winds and floods. The storm will hit northeastern Cambodia and areas around the Tonle Sap Lake according to a forecast from the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology.
