Rains to Continue for the next Five days

Update from Kenya Meteorological department indicates that rain is expected to continue pounding many parts of the country for the next five days with heavy rains expected in Western,Nyanza,Rift Valley, Central Highlands,Nairobi and Northern Kenya.

This in turn might cause flooding over low lying areas and areas with poor drainage system.This can also result in land slides on steep slopes especially in areas that have been receiving high amounts of rainfall in the recent days and have poor vegetation.

Some roads sections are likely to be flooded and slippery thus motorists to excercise caution.

In Western Kenya there is a risk of lightning over this period.

Meanwhile Kenya National Highway Authority(KENHA) has indicated that the authority is prepared for any eventuality that might arise on road network as a result of rains that are pounding many parts of the Country.
