The Kenya Meteorological department has issued an alert warning of strong winds that are likely to hit the country’s eastern region.

According to the weatherman, the winds could be as strong as over 25 knots (12.5m/s) and may blow off roofs as well as well uproot trees.

“Strong southerly winds of over 25 knots (12.5m/s) expected over the eastern half of the Country. Strong winds may blow off roofs, uproot trees and cause structural damage,” said the met. department on Monday.

Residents of the said regions have thus been urged to be on high alert and monitor media updates on the weather changes.

“Those in the areas of concern should be on high alert. People are urged to continue listening to local media as updates will be provided if conditions change significantly,” added the weatherman.

The areas likely to be affected include Garissa, Wajir and Mandera Counties.
