Kenya - Floods

Body

Since the middle October, heavy rainfall has been hitting most ok Kenya causing flooding across the country. Areas of particular concern include Mandera, Garissa, Wajir, and Tana River and parts of the upper eastern areas of the country.

According to UN OCHA over 61,380 people have been affected, nearly 36,000 people have been displaced and 17 people have died. Floods have also led to infrastructure damage, livestock and property losses, and restricted access to roads in various regions in Kenya.

Humanitarian partners are working with authorities to assess the needs and to scale up response to the affected communities. Most urgent humanitarian needs include shelter and non-food items, food, water, sanitation and hygiene services, and facilities to relocate to and rescue to those marooned by flooding.

For the next 24 hours, moderate to heavy rainfall is forecast across most parts of the country.
