Kenya’s meteorological department forecasts heavy rain that could cause flash flooding at the coastline and in the highlands of the Rift Valley region later this week.

The government body anticipates rainfall of more than 40 millimeters (1.6 inches) on April 27 and 50 millimeters on the following day, it said in an e-mailed statement. Coastal regions that should expect torrents are Kwale, Mombasa, Kilifi, Tana-River and Lamu. Farther inland, counties such as Kericho, Narok, Kisii and Bomet should also prepare for a deluge.
