Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that more than 700 people have been rendered homeless, 10,000 hectares of banana plantations destroyed after River Tana burst its banks following heavy rains.
Meanwhile over 200 families have been evacuated from flooded areas of Nanighi and Chewele villages in Bura division, as Tana River North DC Reuben Loyotoman, who visited the villages, said all residents had been asked to vacate the area since the water level was still rising following heavy rains in the Aberdare mountains.
Kinakomba ward councillor Salim Gadeni pleaded for food donations and warned that the number of crocodiles had increased in the river, posing danger to the families.
