Along the Nairobi Meru highway, where the Tana River crosses the major highway the river is currently having water pass over the bridge. Though little water started the levels have increased and now Motorists are advised to avoid crossing the bridge if the levels increase to levels that they will not be able to access the bridge boundaries.

The higher water levels are associated with the current change in weather pattern due to global warming. Flash floods are also expected in different parts of the country including the capital city.
