El Nino is coming.
Kenyans have been asked to prepare for heavy rains in the country – commonly referred to as El Nino – for three months starting this October.
The Kenya Meteorological Department (KMD) says there is a high probability of El Nino conditions being experienced in the country from October to December.
“There is a very high likelihood (approximately 90% chance) of El Niño to prevail during the remaining part of the year and may extend into early 2024,” said the weatherman.
In East Africa, El Niño is often characterized with heavy rains and floods in the final quarter of the year commonly referred to as the OND season.
