via Phnom Penh Post, 13 April 2020: The photo is of Ta Prohm, but according to the Apsara Authority spokesperson the temple was unaffected.
Two days of consecutive rainfall with strong winds felled seven large trees at the Ta Phrom and Angkor Wat temples, and the Angkor World Heritage Site in Siem Reap province on Sunday.
The storm damaged 89 structures in Pailin and Banteay Meanchey provinces, including houses, schools and monasteries, according to a Monday report from local authorities.
Apsara National Authority spokesman Long Kosal confirmed on Monday that seven Scots pine trees, as well as other smaller trees in the Angkor area, collapsed on Sunday due to strong winds. The temples themselves and homes in the area were unaffected, he said.
“Among the collapsed trees, four were at Ta Prohm, one at Angkor Wat, and two others in a village in the area. However, it did not affect the temples. Meanwhile, expert authorities are removing the collapsed trees,” said Kosal.
