Kenya coast under strong winds

Time to take care for fishermen and tourists

26-07-2021 by redazione

As warned by Kenya's meteorological service, the already strong and unrelenting July winds have intensified since last weekend on the coast and in the open sea in the Indian Ocean.
Boat capsizations have been reported in several seaside locations, with two presumed missing off the coast of Mombasa, but so far no other fatal episodes.
Many roofs of houses, mostly made of metal sheeting, were blown off their roofs by the fury of the wind, which reached speeds of up to sixty knots, with violent gusts that made life hard even for the tourists who arrived at the weekend to enjoy the sea and water sports. Only professionals with particularly small sails took up kitesurfing, although the marine authorities strongly advised against it, as well as any fishing activity outside the first coral reef.
Fishermen were also inconvenienced, with low yields and closed fish markets.
In Malindi, Silversand beach was deserted, with foreign tourists trying to venture along the shoreline, but having to give up because of the power of the wind that lifted the sand up to eye level.
Nothing terrible, but quite unusual, especially at this time of year for the coastal town, which is not usually affected by this kind of phenomenon and is known for its mild climate.
Below is a video report from Malindikenya.net.
