A series of five major storm events during the summer-monsoon season of 2013 caused flooding in 12 out of 17 provinces (52 out 145 districts) across the Lao PDR and affected a total of 395,000 people.  Flooding is not unusual at this time of the year but the individual flood events were caused by different weather systems which occurred in different locations at different points in time (starting in July and ending in October 2013), and hit with varying levels of severity. In the South the flood water levels were high for up to 6 days inundating the rice crops that were almost ready to be harvested. Although many fields appear lush green the rice crops are often completely damaged because of the long time under water.
