Residents of Kisii County have been asked to prepare well for the October-December rainy season.
Kisii county director of meteorology Henry Sese, in an advisory to the public, said the rainy season has already begun and the rains are expected to be heavier than usual.
Apart from preparing to harvest the water, the director urged members of the public to take advantage of the rains and consult the agriculture officials on the type of crops that can be planted during this season.
The director has called on the county government and other relevant authorities to ensure that old trees within Kisii town are removed to avert possible accidents during the rains.
