The Kenya Meteorological Department has issued a warning of expected heavy downpour in some parts of the country, including Nairobi, which could result in floods.

In a statement released to media houses on Friday, the department singled out Mount Kenya and South Rift Regions as well as Nairobi and Kiambu as some of the areas that are expected to receive rainfall of more than 30 millimeters in the next two days.

Other areas that the department cited as being of concern include Narok, Bomet, Kericho, Nakuru, Nyahururu, Nyeri, Muranga, Embu and Meru.

“Residents in these areas are advised to be on the lookout for sudden downpours which may cause flash floods. They are advised to exercise caution especially if these rains persist for a long time in one place. Further advisories will be issued as we follow up on the progress of this weather event,” the statement read.
