School children have been worst hit.
The road was blocked at Ruguti area in Tharaka-Nithi County, a move that has left hundreds of commuters and school children stranded.
Elsewhere, transport has been paralyzed along Kanjama-Kangema road in Murang'a after a section of it collapsed due to a landslide.
Kenya Rural Roads Authority has urged motorists to use alternative routes.
“KeRRA would like to issue an alert on the Kanjama Kiria-ini Kangema Road where a section has collapsed due to a landslide, therefore, rendering it impassable. Motorists are advised to seek alternative routes at the moment,” a tweet from the Authority said on Wednesday.
The meteorological department on Sunday issued a warning that the region would experience heavy rains for the next three days.
