More Rain Expected in Kenya as Death Toll Rises


At least 70 people have died in Kenya since mid-March as heavy rain and flooding have continued across the Country.

In Eastern Makueni County, eight bodies were retrieved on Saturday from a River after the truck they were traveling in was swept off a submerged bridge.

Kenya has seen weeks of rain and severe flooding, including in the capital, Nairobi, and the country’s Western and Central regions as citizens have been warned to brace for heavier rainfall.

The heavy rains have caused widespread destruction affecting over 100 thousand people, destroying crops, and damaging infrastructure, schools, homes, and businesses.
