Heavy rainfall across Kenya throughout October has affected over 101,000 people, displaced many thousands and killed 29. The north-eastern, central, and coastal regions are the hardest hit areas, affected by landslides, mudslides and flash flooding.

Destruction and damage of infrastructure-including roads, bridges, schools and hospitals–have been reported in multiple locations. Wajir and Mombasa County have reported power outages caused by fallen electricity pylons, and many roads are impassable, affecting food and medical supplies coming in.

NOAA have recorded rainfall levels at more than 120mm above normal for this time of year. The Kenyan Meteorological Department has predicted above average rainfall for the coming days and weeks.
