Storm and flash floods kill 8 Cambodian
After Philippine, this time is Cambodia:
A torrential storm and flash floods killed at least eight people, including six children, Cambodian officials said Tuesday.
Three girls and a boy, aged between 14 and 18, were killed Sunday when they were swept out to sea while swimming in a heavy storm in Preah Sihanouk province, in the southeast of the country, said the province's deputy police chief Yim Bunnath.
In nearby Kampot province, two men were killed by flash floods, said the province's deputy governor Soth Ya. Another 1,500 people were evacuated Monday to higher ground, he said.
In Kampong Cham province in the east, a six-year-old boy and a nine-year-old girl drowned Sunday while swimming in a pond during heavy rain, the Khmer-language newspaper Rasmei Kampuchea reported Tuesday.
Parts of the Cambodian countryside are now flooded because of seasonal monsoon rain.
