Kenya has been experiencing heavy rainfall throughout October, impacting over 100,000 people, displacing thousands, and killing several dozen. Due to the high amount of rainfall, impacted regions are also suffering from landslides, mudslides and flash flooding. NOAA has recorded rainfall levels at more than 120 mm above normal for this time of year, and the Kenyan Meteorological Department warns above-average rainfall is expected for the next several weeks.
