Kenya issues flood warning

2010-05-13 21:50
Nairobi - Kenya on Thursday issued a flood alert fearing overflow from dams as heavy rains that have killed at least 77 people since March continue to deluge several parts of the country.

"The government issues an alert to all Kenyans and especially those (near) the main rivers that we expect dams to spill over in the next two days due to the heavy rains," a statement said.

The Kenya Red Cross said 128 000 people had been affected by the floods and appealed for financial help.

At least 10 people were killed in a landslide in western Kenya after torrential rains last month.
