The Minister of Water Resources and Meteorology has warned tour boat operators and fishermen to be careful this weekend and early next week as the country is affected by a typhoon.
Lim Kean Hor said typhoon Doksuri would bring heavy rain to some provinces from today until Tuesday.
Siem Reap, Pursat, Kampong Chhnang and Kampong Thom provinces will experience average to heavy rain levels until Tuesday.
“Provinces in highlands and the Dangrek Mountain areas could receive heavy rain as well from this Friday until Tuesday next week,” he said.
Mr Kean Hor added that coastal areas would also be affected by the heavy rain and winds from today until Sunday.
He urged all ministries, local authorities and the public to take great care to avoid accidents.
Water police bureau chief Khem Sophal visited coastal areas this week to warn fishermen and tourists boat operators to be careful before they ventured out to sea.
National Police say there are 119 tourist boats in Preah Sihanouk province.
