This community is located in Takmao district in Kandal province. It has been flooded and getting worse than the other communities since the 11th of October, 2010. Around 40 out of 80 families have been affected by the floods with water levels up to 1.5 meters. This flood has forced them to temporarily move in with their relatives whose properties are not flooded. In the community there are some drainage systems, but they are blocked by waste. The clogged drainage system has resulted in health problems such as: coughing, common cold, sore eyes, dizziness, and skin allergies. The community was flooded until the 15th of October, 2010. While the floods persisted, there were some small hazardous snakes, but no one was injured. The members of the community are very concerned about the damage done to their houses during the flooding.
