Be prepared

Initial stages of Cyclone Kenneth captured via satelite

The Kenya Meteorological Department has clarified that Cyclone Kenneth currently raging the Tanzanian shoreline will not hit Kenya.

The weatherman has, however, explained that effects of the dangerous cyclone will be felt in Nairobi and other parts of the country.

"It is false that cyclone Kenneth will hit the Kenyan Coast. By the laws of physics, Cyclones cannot come this close to the equator.

"However we may experience the effects of the cyclone in the form of enhanced rainfall over parts of Isiolo, Western Kenya , Samburu and including Nairobi," the Met department tweeted on Thursday.
