Prepare for a rainy weekend, as forecasted by the Kenya Meteorological Department. According to the Weatherman, isolated storms and heavy rainfall are expected in parts of the highlands East of the Rift Valley, Nairobi included. Regions South of the Rift Valley, parts of the Coastal strip, and South-Eastern lowlands will also experience precipitation. Specifically, Isiolo and Samburu Counties may experience rainfall from Friday to Monday.
Last week, heavy rains wreaked havoc in various parts of the country, prompting the Nairobi County Government to mobilize emergency response teams to Githogoro and Mukuru areas to mitigate the damage. In an official statement, the county administration revealed that the Nairobi County Rapid Response team, led by Chief Officer Bramwel Simiyu, is presently conducting a comprehensive assessment of the damage caused by the rains.
The intense rains disrupted normalcy, submerging streets and forcing some businesses to temporarily shut down. Motorists and commuters faced challenges as roads became impassable, leading to transportation halts in different parts of the city. Stay informed and take necessary precautions for the anticipated adverse weather conditions.
