More than 1,000 people were yesterday rendered homeless after River Sabaki broke its banks following heavy rains.
The floods also swept away more than 1,400 acres of crops in the area. The areas worst affected by the floods are Galeni village, Kabelengani, Mkokoani, Mandiri, Mzizima and Bate.
Sections of the roads that link Bate and Gandini have been cut off hampering transport.
Red Cross officials led by Malindi branch coordinator Hassan Musa and Magarini DC Richard Karani toured the area to assess the situation. They said the water levels are increasing.
Speaking to journalists by phone, Musa said residents had been ordered to move to higher grounds to avoid loss of lives. He said their greatest fear was that the floods could have a major impact particularly on the low areas.
