PHNOM PENH, Sept 22 (Xinhua): Tropical storm Noul is creating havoc in South-East Asia. First it was Vietnam, then Laos followed by Myanmar and now Cambodia.

The impact of tropical storm Noul has left 11 people dead and one missing in Cambodia, a disaster control spokesman said on Monday.

National Committee for Disaster Management spokesman Khun Sokha said heavy rain, strong wind and lightning began in the kingdom on Sept. 17-20 as a result of the storm which battered the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and Laos.

"Eight people were killed by a lightning strike in Battambang province and three others drowned in the coastal provinces of Preah Sihanouk and Koh Kong, as one is still missing in Pailin province," he told Xinhua.

Noul's impact has caused flash flood in some parts of five provinces - Preah Sihanouk, Koh Kong, Oddar Meanchey, Pailin and Pursat, he said, adding that the flood has inundated 1,825 houses, forcing 475 residents to leave homes for higher ground.

He added that flooding has also caused damage to roads and crops in those provinces. - Xinhua
