This comes as weather experts are warning of more heavy rains in the next few days in an unusual departure from traditional weather patterns. The flood waters have destroyed an area of farmland larger than New York City, displaced over 260,000 people and drowned around 6,000 livestock.
Regional criminal investigation commander Gideon Kibunja who confirmed the death toll said several people are still not accounted for after Nakuru's Patel Dam broke its banks.
He said the county government will donate foodstuffs and other items to the displaced families on Thursday. Caught between different extremes, millions of Kenyans are in dire straits.
The incident raises the already high death toll in Kenya from floods due to seasonal rain.
The floods have also destroyed road networks in some parts of the country. Military helicopters have been deployed to assist with relief efforts.
