Took this photo just this afternoon on our way home, around 5.30pm. We were driving along Sisowath Quay and I noticed that the water in the river is very high. A few more inches and the water will surely overflow to the main road.

The rising water level in the river is due to the incessant rains the past weeks. In fact, floods hit some parts of the country since last month and there have been reports of deaths. According to Relief Web, about 100 people have been reported dead. The Cambodian National Committee for Disaster Management also reported that approximately 90,300 families in 15 provinces have been affected, around 170,000 hectares of rice fields and 63,000 homes were under water.

To those who have generous hearts, please donate some canned goods and clothings to the Cambodian Red Cross.

  1. I hope things don’t get any worse for you all.

  2. Heartbreaking situation with flooding, but I’m glad you shared it in Our World.

  3. Flooding can be such a tragedy, even our towns of Pickering and Malton have been badly hit by flooding in recent years though fortunately no one died, but some people were unable to return to their homes for over a year. I hope the floods in your area go down very quickly before more damage is done.

  4. Wonderful photo ~ sad to see the flooding, though ~ thanks, namaste, CArol (A Creative Harbor) linked with Our World Tuesday

  5. I feel for your countrymen with this disaster and looming disaster in your region as well. I do hope the rain stops for a while so the rivers can retreat into their beds.

  6. Sad to see the flooding way to capture it.
