Over the past three months, most parts of Kenya have received heavy rainfall that has left more than 132 people dead and thousands displaced.

Floods, lightning strikes and landslides have been witnessed in various parts of the country, leaving behind a trail of destruction.

The Meteorological Department of Kenya, in its weekly and monthly forecasts, has predicted that the downpour will persist until the end of the month, with intermittent episodes of heavy and light rainfall in the next three weeks.

In the month of October, no Kenyan county recorded less than 75 per cent of their October long-term average.

As this is usually the short rain season, the heavy rains come as a puzzle to many.
