Climate warning

Death and displacement as floods hit East Africa

Flooding throughout eastern Africa has killed dozens of people and displaced tens of thousands, underscoring intensifying climate risks in the drought-stricken region, aid agencies reported on Monday. Flooding in Kenya over the weekend uprooted scores of homes, decimated hundreds of acres of farmland, and killed at least 15 people in the country, according to the Kenya Red Cross Society. Torrential rain swept the usually dry country, sending waters tearing through entire villages and washing through the streets. The disaster forced 4,000 families to evacuate from their homes, local media reported.

        Hi, Dancun, this is very worrying but you shouldn't be sending a climate warning to Al Jazeera Balkans, it has nothing to do with this crisis
