The Kenya’s Meteorological Department now says heavy rainfall is expected offshore along the Kenyan coast from Sunday intensifying to Tuesday next week.

Kenya Meteorological Services director, Dr. David Gikungu, said the current observations indicate that Tropical Cyclone Hidaya has made landfall on the coast of Tanzania.

Dr. Gikungu, however, said another depression is developing behind Hidaya, which the Kenya Meteorological Department is closely monitoring. He said the effects of the cyclone are already being felt offshore, with strong winds and large waves surpassing two meters.

The KMD boss said the department will continue monitoring the situation and issue updates as necessary.

He further warned residents, particularly in coastal regions and individuals involved in marine activities in the Indian Ocean, to take maximum precautions.
