I haven’t been out the past week so I have very little pictures to show about what’s happening inside the country. My younger  brother who blogs intermittently at LitratoImages went on a company outreach to Lvea Aem  district in Kandal province, one of the badly affected areas in the country. Lvea Aem is about 30-45mins away from Phnom Penh and my brother took photos showing the current situation there. Here’s one that I borrowed from him:

Oh, this picture shows the beautiful and the ugly at the same time. Clearly the photographer captured a beautiful image but at the same time it shows the ugly implications. The wat (temple) is half-submerged in water but the school-building behind it (on the left) and the covered shed (in front of the wat) are almost underwater.  These parked motorised boats are for rent, however, and has been used as the only means to go around the villages.

Reports say that rain continues to pound the countryside, while there is hardly any rain this week in my side of the city. If the rain continues to fall at the rate it is currently going, Phnom Penh will be underwater soon as floodwater descend on the capital as, reports say, sections of the banks of the Mekong river, Tonle Sap and Tonle Bassac are in grave danger of collapsing.

Please remember the countless Cambodians displaced by floods in your prayers.

  3. Hi it looks like we in SEAsia are experiencing the floods. We had them first, 2nd is Thailand and now your country. Many of our towns are still deep in flood waters after 3 weeks from the rains and typhoons. I also posted it just recently and also asked for prayers. I am glad that my family and friends are living not in low lying areas. I know that Phnom Penh is at the side of the Mekong, but i think the river is way down than the ground level. God bless us all!
