During ‘average’ instances, the waters across roads are knee-length and it becomes practically impossible for office workers to retain the right outlook for their jobs. In some neighborhoods, the problem of flooding becomes more pronounced than for others. In South C, the landscape and the structure of residential houses lead to a more daunting challenge as a result of flooding. The neighborhood is one of the most affected areas of the city (Baariu, 2017) and is therefore going to form the basis of the current research problem. Mothers and children (even those who would not mind wetting their clothing) are at a greater danger of drowning. The estate of South C is one of the most affected regions within the metropolis experiencing some of the most biting impacts when such calamities occur (Nairobi News, 2015).
