NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Coast farmers are marooned by floods at Kolobani village, Magarini in Kilifi, about 120 km north of Mombasa, Kenya’s second largest city. With the use of a helicopter and boats, the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) helped evacuate at least 209 people from the submerged village to a safer ground at Karemboni Primary School after River Sabaki burst its banks due to the heavy rain.
