CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JimCA2 shot these photos on May 8 of heavy flooding in the streets of Phnom Penh following the first major storm of the “rainy” season. ‘Phnom Penh has this happen about four to ten times each rainy season,’ he said. ‘If there is a downpour of the same magnitude, certain areas around town flood.’ – jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
Today was almost a carbon copy of yesterday as another heavy afternoon shower unloaded on the city. The Khmers are pretty resilient, as this is normal during the rainy season. The same areas of the Capital flood, but yesterday served as a good lesson to those that tried to brave the flooded streets and found their cars and motos stuck in meter deep water. Traffic moved smoother as alternate routes were more planned out.
