Traffic mess, floods as morning rain pounds Nairobi

Nairobi residents woke up to traffic snarls and flooded roads as rains pounded the capital city on Tuesday morning.

The rains that pounded the city overnight left flood prone areas submerged, with emergency services concerned on the fate of people living near river banks and riparian areas.

A truck that rolled over early morning on Mombasa Road near the airport turnoff caused a traffic tailback all the way to Mlolongo.

On the Eastern Bypass, a lorry rolled over on an underpass after hitting a ditch.

The Kenya Meteorological Services had over the weekend warned of heavy downpour in the city that will continue throughout week.

This is what Kenyans on Twitter had to say on the morning mess.
