Heavy rains pound, flood parts of Nairobi – PHOTOS
Parts of Nairobi and its environs were on Friday left resembling flooded rivers after heavy rains pounded the city for the better part of the afternoon.
When the torrential rainfall finally abated late in the afternoon, it left some major roads flooded in its wake, in effect rendering them impassable and inaccessible.
The most affected areas include sections of the Thika Superhighway, the Central Business District, Westlands and Industrial Area.
City residents shared photos on social media showing the situation in some these areas.
The heavy flooding greatly affected some businesses and disrupted the normal routines of Nairobians who have an infamous aversion for rainfall.
Early this week the meteorological department warned citizens to expect sudden floods with the coming of the rains in most parts of the country.
