Kenya’s Patel Dam bursts leaving several killed, destroying homes

Officials in Kenya say a dam has burst on Wednesday night after heavy rain, causing “huge destruction” and killing at least 20 people.

The Patel Dam in Nakuru County broke its walls last night, and swept away hundreds of homes downstream

The Kenyan Red Cross says it has rescued some 40 people so far.

There are fears the death toll could rise as the search-and-rescue operation continues.

The toll now brings to 152 the number of people who have died countrywide as a result of floods since heavy rains started in March.
