金边,10月15日(新华社)——周四,一名发言人说,热带风暴引发的暴雨在柬埔寨25个省市中的19个造成洪水,造成13人死亡,12376人疏散。


国家灾害管理委员会(NCDM)的发言人Seak Vichet说,自本月初以来,有193,268人受到洪水影响,另有12,376人已被疏散到安全地带。


“到目前为止,洪水已经造成13人死亡,其中包括5名儿童,”他告诉新华社,并补充说,受灾最严重的省份包括西北马德望、普萨特、班提明切和坎达尔南部。


洪涝还淹没了47,923间房屋和186,689公顷的水稻和其他农作物,他补充说,到目前为止,12958公顷的水稻和其他农作物已经被摧毁。


交通也已经中断,受灾最严重省份的几条主要道路已经关闭,以免损坏路面。


水资源和气象部长Lim Keanhor周四表示,预计从10月17日到19日还会有降雨、大风和巨浪,因为沙特正在遭受热带风暴“Saudel”的影响,这可能会导致进一步的洪水。


他在一份新闻稿中说:“生活在平原、水道和山区附近的人们,渔民和海上旅行者应该格外警惕,以避免任何可能的危险。”


洪水通常在8月到10月袭击柬埔寨。根据国家清洁发展机制的数据,去年,湄公河和山洪造成30人死亡,暴雨造成8人死亡,131人受伤。

PHNOM PENH, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- Thirteen people have been killed and 12,376 others evacuated in Cambodia after tropical storm-triggered rains caused floods in 19 of the kingdom's 25 cities and provinces, a spokesman said on Thursday.

Seak Vichet, a spokesman for the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM), said that since the beginning of the month, 193,268 people have been affected by the floods, and 12,376 others have been evacuated to safer ground.

"The floods have killed 13 people so far, including five children," he told Xinhua, adding that the worst-hit provinces included northwestern Battambang, Pursat, and Banteay Meanchey as well as southern Kandal.

The floods have also inundated 47,923 houses and 186,689 hectares of rice and other crops, he said, adding that so far, 12,958 hectares of the affected rice and other crops have been destroyed.

Transportation has also been disrupted, as several major roads in the worst-hit provinces have been closed to avoid damaging their surfaces.

Water Resources and Meteorology Minister Lim Keanhor said on Thursday that further rain, wind, and high waves are forecast from Oct. 17 to 19 because the kingdom is suffering from the impact of tropical storm Saudel, which could lead to further flooding.

"People living in plains, along waterways and near mountains, fishermen and sea travelers should be extra-vigilant to avoid any possible dangers," he said in a press release.

Floods usually hit Cambodia between August and October. Last year, Mekong River and flash floods claimed 30 lives, as storms killed eight people and injured 131 others, according to the NCDM.
