At least eight Kenyan villagers have died in a landslide which destroyed many homes in the west of the country, rescue workers say.
The landslide occurred in Marakwet district early on Friday, when most people were sleeping.
Rainwater is reported to have gushed down hills bringing large quantities of earth down with it.
A Kenya Red Cross spokesman told AFP news agency they were struggling to get heavy equipement to the remote area.
Patrick Muchai, of the government's National Disaster Operations Centre, said rescue efforts using hand-held implements were continuing in the Tot area of the Rift Valley's Marakwet district.
He told the BBC's Focus on Africa programme that more than six people were believed to be missing and three others had been taken to hospital.
"A river has also burst its banks and floods in the area are affecting 150 households, that's about 900 people," he said.
Last month in neighbouring Uganda, a landslide swept away three villages on the slopes of Mount Elgon, killing about 350 people.
