Typhoon Kalmaegi bringing large volume of freshwater

Typhoon Kalmaegi had brought large volume of freshwater to Northern Laos.

As there is no infrastructure capable to maintain the huge water volume, many rivers had suddenly become engorged by muddy, debris-filled flood waters and had risen by several metres.

Everything along the banks had been hit, properties, roads, bridges rushing back to the sea as no single dam had been completed to stabilise the water flow, store it clean, distribute all year round for consumption, food and industrial production.
