KURA closes section of United Nations Avenue in Runda due to flooding

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (Kura) has announced the closure of a section of United Nations Avenue in Runda due to flooding.

In a statement on Monday May 6, the authority said the section of road was closed due to rising water levels on the road following heavy rains last night.

The affected sections are between the Ruaka Road roundabout and Magnolia Close. (The Lord Erroll Restaurant).

“We are closely monitoring the situation and will provide updates. We urge motorists to use alternative routes and exercise caution,” Kura said.

The effects of the downpour have continued to disrupt lives across the country. Roads have been cut, houses have been washed away and many lives have been lost as a result of the incessant rains.

As a result, roads have been closed as part of the government’s efforts to ensure the safety of Kenyans.

The excessive rainfall has caused rivers and drains to overflow, turning roads into waterways and destroying homes.

As of Sunday May 5, more than 228 people have died as a result of the floods, with thousands more injured and others displaced from their homes.

This comes as the Kenya Meteorological Department (KMD) warned of heavy rainfall in many parts of the country in the coming days, as the government stepped up humanitarian operations to minimise the loss of life.

Cabinet Secretary for Home Affairs Kithure Kindiki said more than 227,238 people have been affected by flooding across the country since March, when heavy rains linked to El Niño began.

He added that 72 people were still missing in various incidents across the country, while 42,526 households had been displaced, affecting about 212,630 people.

On Friday, May 3, President William Ruto warned during his State of the Nation Address that the reopening of schools would be postponed until further notice.

Schools were due to reopen on Monday May 6, after the original date of April 29 was pushed back.

The Ministry of Interior has highlighted the severe impact in Marsabit, Tharaka Nithi, Baringo, Kisumu, Nakuru, Machakos, Uasin Gishu, Busia, Laikipia, Nyandarua, Trans Nzoia, Nairobi, Wajir, Mandera, Bomet, Kajiado, Embu and Nyeri counties.

The government on Sunday reiterated the urgency for people living along river corridors and other waterways to leave immediately to avert disaster. Logistical support is being provided to facilitate the evacuation of settlements in 33 high-risk counties with 178 high-risk dams and reservoirs.

“A nationwide assessment has identified 192 high-risk dams, with Central (60), Eastern (39), Rift Valley (29), Coast (22), Western (21), Nairobi (12), North Eastern (5) and Nyanza (4),” the ministry said.
