Massive floods kill over 400 in Kenya, Somalia and Rwanda

Heavy rains have left hundreds of people dead and hundreds of thousands more displaced across various parts of East Africa.

Kenya, Somalia and Rwanda are the worst hit.

The flooding comes as the region tries to recover from a severe drought in 2017 that threatened millions of people.

Across Kenya, Rwanda and Somalia, the death toll from the flooding has surpassed 400, with many thousands more forced to flee their homes to escape rising waters.

Rwanda’s ministry of disaster management puts its death toll at just over 200 in a period of four months.

Earlier in the week, at least 15 people died in Somaliland when heavy rains caused by Tropical Cyclone Sagar swept through the horn of Africa.

In Kenya, the Red Cross said at least 200 people have died as a result of the heavy rains.
