Banteay Meanchey Warned As Thai Dam Prepares To Open Dam Gates

Banteay Meanchey: Reports say that the Thai authorities have informed the Kingdom of Cambodia that a major dam will be opened due to excess water storage.

Until now, the Thai side has not opened the sluice gate, but may do so soon following this announcement. People in Banteay Meanchey must be very careful. Updates to follow.

EDIT: Thanks to Epidemiks for this correction: Unlikely to be Khun Dan Prakarn Chon Dam. Wrong river basin, drains to the gulf. Highly likely it is Huai Yang (…) will flow to Cambodia. Less than 30km from border. #FloodKH
