On Thursday morning in Naivasha, a woman was killed by flash floods while two of her coworkers were saved by bystanders.
When the flower farm workers arrived at Moi Ndabi Center on their way to work, flash floods had already started, briefly halting activity in the area.
Several houses and farmland were inundated, leaving locals to calculate significant losses.
The county government issued a warning to residents a week prior about the impending El Niño rains.
Flash floods that surprised locals were caused by heavy rainfall in the Maella area, according to resident James Kung’u.
He claimed that flash floods had already wreaked damage in the region.
The body was found 2 kilometers from the scene, according to Mutua Kisilu, commissioner of the Naivasha subcounty.
Prior to the recent rains, Mutua claimed that county and national administrations had started awareness efforts in flood-prone areas.
