According to reports, floods due to heavy rain in Baringo county have caused at least three fatalities and five others are thought to be missing as of Friday, May 1.

Further heavy rain is to be anticipated in the near term. Associated transportation disruptions are to be expected in the affected areas.
Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, avoid areas directly affected by flooding, confirm road conditions, anticipate transportation and business disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
