This evening, residents of Nairobi and its environs were ambushed by heavy rains that left several roads, homes and hospitals flooded.
Many took to social media and shared photos and videos of floods in various parts of the city.
Not even MP Shah or Aga Khan – some of the Nairobi’s biggest health centres – were left behind.
Aga Khan and MP Shah hospitals flooded. I guess that #BBIReport will sort our drainage.

Janitors were forced to find a way of draining the contaminated water out of the hospital as quickly as possible.
In Kilimani, flood waters broke walls along Likoni Lane off Dennis Pritt Road and stormed into the residents’ homes.

This comes a day after the Kenya Meteorological Department warned Kenyans to brace themselves for more heavy rainfall in the coming days.
Heavy rains were predicted in Nairobi, Narok, Nakuru, Migori and Kisumu with the department asking residents to be on the lookout for floods.
Members of the public were warned to avoid driving through, or walking in moving water or open fields and also not to shelter under trees and near grilled windows to minimize exposure to lightning strikes.
