Phnom Penh - Cambodian authorities released final figures Thursday showing that 43 people died in the kingdom when Typhoon Ketsana swept through the country in late September.

The National Committee for Disaster Management said the typhoon injured 67 people and affected more than 66,000 families. Around 10,000 homes were damaged.

'More people died during the floods that followed the storm,' said the committee's deputy director for information, Keo Vy, explaining the agency's increased figures.

Keo Vy added that the typhoon had seriously affected agriculture and infrastructure in 13 provinces across the country, damaging 54,500 hectares of rice fields just weeks before the rice harvest. Dozens of bridges were damaged as were 320 kilometres of mainly rural roads.

The final figures for Cambodia showed that Ketsana also flooded more than 1,100 schools.

Before hitting Cambodia, Ketsana tore through the Philippines, where it killed 464 people, and central Vietnam, where at least 159 people died.

Live in Joy

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.
