Flood

"Be Prepared for floods" as climate change is expected in the following places

Rainfall is expected over few places in the Highlands West of the Rift Valley, the Lake Victoria Basin, the South and Central Rift Valley, the Northwest and the Highlands East of the Rift Valley. Isolated storms are likely to occur over some parts of the Highlands West of the Rift Valley.

Cold and cloudy conditions, accompanied by occasional light rains, are expected over the Highlands East of the Rift Valley (including Nairobi County) as well as over some parts of the South-eastern Lowlands, the Central and South Rift Valley and the Highlands West of the Rift Valley.

Strong southerly to south-easterly winds with speeds exceeding 25 knots (12.9 m/s) are expected over the Coast, Northeast and some parts of the South-eastern Lowlands.

Most parts around the lake region are flat lands hence are prone to flooding which have make people leaving in such places experience difficult moments during rany seasons.

Most river along the lake region and the rift valley has also overflow during raining seasons at the past causing floods.

Floods have led to destruction of properties and death of animals and also people losing their relatives. People along the rift valley and around the lake region are being encouraged to move to places that are raised to avoid accidents caused by floods when the rains will start.
