The persistent rain over the past few days has caused flash floods in the provinces of Kampong Chhnang and Kampong Spue.
According to reports, the unusually heavy rains were brought on by the high pressure that China sent to Cambodia from January 11 to January 17.
Residents along the Prek Tnaot and Anlong Chrey rivers have been warned to be on the lookout for flooding as the rain level has reached 141 millimeters in certain locations.
Two districts in Kampong Chhnang province were inundated, and 12 households were evacuated to safety, according to Soth Kimkolmuny, spokeswoman for the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM).
According to Kimkolmuny, the Chak Tim reservoir in the Toek Phos district was destroyed, which resulted in flooding in several areas of the region and the closure of the Thmar Kral resort.
He continued by saying that because the rain is still falling and because homes near the Anlong Chrey river have been under water since Wednesday, residents in the Toek Phos and Samakki Meanchey districts have been advised to take precautions and be ready for flooding this week.
Due to spillover from Kampong Chhnang province, two districts in Kampong Speu province are also underwater. Residents near the Prek Tnaot and Anlong Chrey rivers should prepare their belongings and personal papers since they might have to leave if the water level rises more, according to Kimkolmuny.
According to Douk Bunthon, Director of the Kampong Chhnang Provincial Department of Water Resource, flooding in the neighborhood has been brought on by water overflowing out of the Anlong Chrey reservoir.
