The ongoing heavy rains that are expected to continue into the month of December has propmted the County Government of Nakuru to warned its residents to move to safer grounds.

The warning comes as 24 dams in the area are almost full sparking concerns that they could overflow and cause flooding.

The county’s department of disaster management and humanitarian assistance also asked residents living on the water paths and near the dams to move to safer grounds in preparation for flooding should the rains continue.

The warning is expected to reduce destruction and loss of property and lives in the event that the dams overflow.

The department’s Chief Officer, Ann Njenga, said that over 24 dams within the county are full and that they had deployed staff to monitor the dams.

Some of the dams that are already full, include Nyondia in Naivasha, Jika in Mbaruk, and Gilgil and Visoi in Rongai.

Ms Njenga said the county invested over Sh2 million to expand water paths and ensure flooded areas are drained.
