    this report on the Lonely Planet thorntree reports that Kampot and Kep are seeing sever flooding and that the road to Ko Kong may be out -- if you're travelling in that part of Cambodia, you should give the above thread a read.

    And here is more information, courtesy of DFAT (Australian Govt):

    Following recent reports of flooding in certain regions of Cambodia (Kampot, Kratie, Ko Kong and Stung Treng), the Australian Embassy encourages all Australians and Canadians to monitor developments that might affect their safety.

    The Embassy can confirm that certain areas within Kampot City are two metres underwater. The roads from Kampot to Kep, Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh are inaccessible along with the road from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh.

    The areas surrounding Kratie and Stung Treng are at risk of flooding. The Embassy will continue to monitor the situation and advise accordingly.

    It was reported this morning that the 6th century pre-Angkorian brick shrine at Sambor Prey kuk in the northern province of Kampong Thom was battered by storms and collapsed on Tuesday. This is one of the places which I want to visit, it was my father's birthplace, he came from Kompong Thom. I hope it was not totally destroyed.
