Situation Overview

There has been a general decrease in rainfall in most parts of the County except parts of Western Kenya and Nyanza regions. Heavy rainfall was experienced in Busia, Migori and Isiolo Counties. Parts of Narok, Kisii and Bungoma Counties received average rainfall, while Laikipia and Nairobi received light showers. No rains were received in the entire Coastal region and North Eastern regions.
There has therefore been no major incident reported as a result.

KRCS / Other stakeholder’s interventions
KRCS in collaboration with County Governments continues with response operations in support of families affected by floods in various parts of the country.
Currently the following responses are ongoing;

Isiolo County

In Mbalambate Village, KRCS and the County Government team carried out an assessment and established that 21 households had been displaced following flash floods. Distribution of NFIs is set to take place on Wednesday (25th November) targeting the affected families.

Tana River County

In Tana River County, the continued rise in water levels along the Tana River channel has forced families to move to higher areas. KRCS teams are currently carrying out registration of the displaced families in various camps in the county. At least 14 camps have been reached. Some of the areas affected include Umoja,
Miyesa, Haluba A and B, Kiembeni, Korlabe A, B, and C, Vidange, Ngumo - Garjale, Baomo, Feji, Maziwa, Sera, Wolkon, Marombo - Ngelwa among other areas.
Due to the rapid increase in displacement camps, there is a risk of disease outbreak due to poor sanitation in the camps.
