Here’s what you need to be wary of as you gear up for the rainy Mashujaa weekend

It is rain season and this Mashujaa weekend heavy rains are expected to continue.

According to an advisory issued by Kenya Red Cross on Thursday, Kenyans should be wary of the rains and stay updated on the weather updates.

Red Cross says that some parts of North Eastern, Coastal, Central and Western regions will receive very heavy rains and residents have been asked to be cautious of potential landslides and also move to higher grounds.

The advisory also urged the public to drink only treated and boiled water as a precaution against possible waterborne diseases as the heavy rains could trigger Cholera outbreak and malaria. People have been advised to dress appropriately to keep warm.

Kenya Meteorological Department also cautioned drivers against driving through flooded areas, walking through moving waters and swimming through fast-moving waters.

Motorists have also been asked to be vigilant on the roads by keeping a safe distance while driving and to always use headlights when it is raining.

The department forecasted heavy rains from the 17th to the 21st of October 2019. President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to lead Kenyans in commemorating the Heroes’ Day in Mombasa amid expected showers in Likoni, Mvita, Changamwe, Kisauni, and Nyali.

Garissa, Lamu, Tana River, Taita Taveta, Kitui, Makueni, Nakuru, Nandi, and Bungoma will receive heavy rains. North-western Kenya and some parts of Narok, Kajiado will experience normal rains.

The heavy rains have disrupted transport on some roads with the situation feared to might get worse. On Thursday, River Ramisi in Kwale County broke its bank as floods swept away Muhogo bridge on Mombasa-Lungalunga Road forcing motorists to seek alternative routes.

On Friday morning, four family members were killed in Marakwet East landslide following the heavy rains in the area. Whereas in Kitui, four people died on Thursday after their vehicle was swept away as they attempted to cross a flooded Mutindi River in Matinyani.
