PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — A Cambodian disaster relief official says at least 104 people have died in recent floods caused by heavy rains and the Mekong River overflowing its banks.

Disaster management committee spokesman Keo Vy said Wednesday that floods in the past several weeks have affected some 1.5 million people in 17 of the country's 24 provinces.

He warned that more floods still threaten the country.

The Cambodian Red Cross says more than 21,700 families have left their homes due to flooding.

Fatalities and dislocations caused by floods are an annual problem for Cambodia at this time of year. About 250 people were killed in 2011 in the worst flooding in a decade, according to the government.

Only 14 people were reported killed by flooding in the relatively dry year of 2012.
