Kenyan villagers reel from floods

The most intense floods and droughts on Earth began occurring more frequently in 2015, at a rate of about four per year instead of three, the study found. The ensuing years have been the eight hottest on record. Climate change was the largest driver of this shift in dry and wet events, outweighing the effects of the planet’s natural swings between hotter and cooler years caused by the El Niño and La Niña climate patterns.

    When will this ever stop? We face these same challenges year after year. Our leaders ought to wake up and smell the coffee

      This shows absolute laxity on the part of the Kenyan government in acting on real time climate alerts from the met department to save the lives of vulnerable communities.

        I recall the confusion from the government that they were not certain about their predictions that would have led to miscommunication

            It is unfortunate how the government is silent over the same issue! They should be in front line to help the victims!

                  It is unfortunate to hear that Kenyan villagers are suffering from floods. Flooding can have devastating effects on communities, causing displacement, damage to property, and loss of livelihoods. It is crucial for the government and humanitarian organizations to provide immediate assistance and support to those affected. Long-term measures such as improved infrastructure and early warning systems should also be implemented to mitigate the impact of future floods.

                    Its really sad to see the situation going from worse to worse, sometimes you don't even admire to watch news and agony our fellow Kenyans are going through in different places.

                      @patrick_kiash Hopefully, increased awareness can lead to more concerted efforts in providing aid.

                        @grace_njeri_804 now that it has already happened, these needs post event assessments ie.identifying the shortcomings, fostering improvements in both individual and governmental responses for more effective preparedness in the future.

                        The Kenyan government has been very reluctant to help out it's citizens. This is unacceptable while you're also taxing them heavily

                          Immediate support and long-term resilience measures are important to help them cope with the challenges and rebuild their lives.

                              @jane_wangui I would say it's a shared responsibility but in these scenario Individuals should have heed warnings and take necessary precautions, such as relocating to safer areas or fortifying their homes.

                                @jane_wangui It's common sense all over the world there is effects of climate change we were warned but the rate of ignorance that guys have is not good

                                  @princess_nel_268 Exactly because the government can't reach out to everyone in a flash we also need to be responsible too.

                                    @princess_nel_268 people should have heed to these warnings and relocate plus the government should provide amenities they require in their new homes
