Three people have lost their lives at Vipingo area in Kilifi County after strong waves hit the coastal area. According to those who witnessed the incident, the three people were at the beach and that is when strong waves that were accompanied by wind washed them into the ocean.

According to Mohammed Osman, a driver of a lory which the three men were loading with goods at the coastal area when the accident occurred, says that very strong whirl wind blew from the ocean and pushed them into the water where very strong waves carried them further into the deep water of the Indian Ocean.
