The meteorological department has warned the return of torrential rainfall in the western part of the country starting June.
As a result, there’s going to be increased floods and landslides.
Additionally, the meteorological department said more rains in June, July, and August may cause an outbreak of respiratory diseases.
For instance, Kenyans may contract flu, asthma, common colds, and pneumonia.
Correspondingly, waterborne diseases such as cholera and malaria may increase in the lake regions. Also, areas in the Rift valley may have an outbreak following the conducive temperatures that promote their spread.
The meteorological department director Stella Aura said flooding will occur in low lying areas across the country.
Moreover, mudslides will occur in hilly areas of central, western, and some parts of the Rift valley.
“Following the June, July, and August rain patterns, the northwestern region, Lake Basin region, and highland areas will have a lot of rainfall.
Further, she noted that most areas in Nairobi and central will have cloudy and cool conditions. They will also experience occasional rainfall with cooler temperatures than normal.
