A dam burst its banks in Kenya's Rift Valley, killing at least 27 people and forcing hundreds from their homes, Kenyan officials said today.

The Wednesday night incident occurred at around 9 o'clock in the evening when Patel Dam broke its banks sweeping villages in the Solai area of Subukia.

"We have set up a centre near the scene for families to report missing members to enable us to reunite them", said Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui.

Kenya Red Cross said on Twitter it had rescued 39 people so far.

The Kenyan Red Cross estimates that more than 500 families have been caught up in the deluge, with many people still unaccounted for. Many are feared still trapped.
