MET: Heavy rains expected in Coastal region during Mahujaa Day


Kenya Meteorological Department has warned of possible heavy rains in the coastal region over the weekend.
With heavy rains being witnessed in Mombasa, the weather department predicts that the same condition will go on during the Mashujaa Day celebrations.

The weatherman has asked Kenyans planning to attend the celebration to carry umbrellas.
“The rains will also be accompanied by southerly winds,” MET said on Friday.
The ongoing rains have caused floods in Mombasa, rendering roads impassable due to poor drainage systems.
KenHa in a statement on Thursday advised motorists to exercise caution while driving.
Four people were on Wednesday killed in Kitui after floods swept away their car.
On Friday, a family of four was buried alive after landslides that hit Elgeyo Marakwet as rains are being witnessed in most parts of the country.
