Likoni Ferry

Likoni and Mtongwe ferry channels had their operations suspended on Tuesday by Kenya Ferry Services officials due to high tides. Hundreds of commuters and motorists are stuck at Likoni following flooding at the ferry crossing channel caused by heavy downpour. The heavy rains at the Coast region have left behind a trail of destruction.

Learning has also been disrupted in most parts of Kilifi County with school heads forced to send pupils home.
