Aug. 16 (Bloomberg) -- At least nine people died in northwestern Kenya when a minibus they were traveling in was swept away by a flash flood, the Daily Nation reported, citing Turkana West District Commissioner Patrick Muriira.

The Nawatom River burst its banks after rain fell on Aug. 14 in an area that has experienced a drought and faced the threat of famine, the Nairobi-based newspaper said.

In the southwestern city of Kisumu, on the banks of Lake Victoria, at least 100 families were forced to flee their homes that were damaged by floods, the newspaper said.
