Typhoons in Cambodia

Typhoons only occur occasionally in Cambodia. On average, they happen about 5 times a year. The hardest hit regions are East.

The typhoon season in the Pacific usually begins with less severe storms in April and does not end until November. The most severe typhoons usually occur in August and September.

Cambodia has certainly been affected by the foothills of several typhoons, but during the past 12 months no typhoon reached the inhabited areas on land.
