Over 1000 Turkana County residents displaced

10 March 2016, 16:45

Turkana – Close to 1 000 residents on Turkana County were left homeless after intense rains, reports Citizen TV.

This comes after Rivers Turkwel and Kawalazee burst their banks, sweeping away the Soweto, Napetet, Kalifonia and Nakerekei villages.

Transport in the area has also come to a halt affecting local schools as well.

The rain is attributed to the El Nino rains which have been affecting the country since 2015.

In December 2015 alone more than 50 000 Kenyans were left displaced after heavily rainfall.

According to IGAD’s Climate Prediction and Applications Centre’s Director, Guleid Arton, has stated that the El Nino rains were not yet over, but are expected to subside.

Because Kenya is an equatorial region it will experience advanced rainfall.

Meanwhile hundreds of commuters and motorists in Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) were stuck in traffic jams following a heavy downpour.

The rains that lasted for slightly over an hour Wednesday afternoon also led to the flooding of the city streets and major roads.
