Written question – Kenya – E-014989/2015

Several places in Kenya have been affected by heavy rainfall in recent days, with 60 mm recorded in the city of Mombasa over a 24-hour period (4-5 November).

Rainfall, flooding and landslide damage have been reported since 11 November by local media in the Mount Elgon region, on Migingo island, and in Narok and Homa Bay in south-western Kenya, as well as in Garissa, eastern Kenya. At least eight people have been killed and hundreds have been displaced.

Is the European Union going to provide humanitarian assistance to the displaced population?
