Brave for heavy rains, Kenyans told

The Kenya Meteorological Department has announced that it will rain in most parts of the country in the next twenty-four hours.

In an advisory issued on Friday, the weathermen said residents of Nakuru, Migori, Homa Bay, Kericho, West Pokot, Trans Nzoia, and Bungoma counties should be ready for rainfall.

Other areas are Uasin Gishu, Nandi, Kakamega, Baringo, Laikipia, Nyandarua, Nyeri, Murang’a, Kiambu, Meru, Samburu, Nyamira, Kisii, Narok, Nairobi and some parts of Turkana County.

At the same time, met said counties in Kenya's North Eastern, North Western, South Eastern lowlands, and Coastal counties will not receive any rainfalls.

Last week, Kenyans experienced prolonged cloudy and cool conditions, which started in June.

The weathermen had earlier predicted drought in various parts of the country between August and October.

Persistent drought in Arid and Semi-Arid areas has caused food insecurity, with millions of Kenyans reported battling hunger.

The worst-hit counties are Turkana, Marsabit, Wajir, Garissa, Mandera, Samburu and Baringo.
