Many amateur radio frequencies in Southeast Asia are occupied by disaster communications. This applies especially to the 40m and 20m bands (e.g. 14190 kHz and the SEANET frequency 14320 kHz). Many stations are working with (very) low power because power is not everywhere running again yet. It is a matter of ham spirit to listen especially for weak signals from this regions and keep the affected frequencies clear!
