Some Kenyans are literally swimming in their homes due to severe flooding in areas of the country.
The Red Cross in Kenya has estimated that recent floods in various counties and regions of the country have left around 200,000 people homeless.
Heavy rainfall has plagued the area since last week, and is expected to continue and cause more people to flee their homes. The Red Cross has asked people in the area to evacuate immediately, as the situation may worsen—two damns in particular, Masinga and Kamburu, are at risk of overflowing.
There have also been mudslides in the area, causing roads to completely shut down. Many residents have had to be rescued from their homes after being trapped on rooftops.
