This is after the Kenya Meteorological Department said that the rains currently being witnessed are set to continue until Christmas or new year.

"The October-November-December 2019 seasonal rainfall is likely to cease during the fourth week of December over several parts of the country," David Gikungu, a deputy director at the Meteorological Department was quoted by the Star.

The weatherman further stated that the current rains exceed those that had been experienced before in the same month in the past years.

An earlier October forecast had indicated that the rains will end by the second week of this month. 

The current forecast, however, indicates that the heavy rains are due to the abnormal warmth of the Indian Ocean which causes high evaporation rate discarding a lot of moisture inland.

Rift Valley highlands and the Lake Victoria basin will experience noxious storms.

"Heavy run off generated during severe storms is likely to lead to flooding and disruption of transport systems in low lying and poorly drained areas," Gikungu said. 

The heavy rains have caused several effects such as landslides in West Pokot which left over 50 people dead and displaced others.
