Heavy Rains Claim Six Lives In Oman

Heavy rainfall in Oman over the past two days has claimed six lives while 20 others were rescued, according to the Civil Defense and Ambulance Authority (CDAA).

Due to the impact of a low pressure weather system, parts of Oman have been hit by intense rain, sparking floods in several governorates, the CDAA said in a statement.

Two people were rescued in a valley in the Wilayat of Rustaq, the statement said, adding the rescued individuals are in good health condition.

“The weather is expected to be cloudy over the governorates of Musandam, North Al Batinah, South Al Batinah, Muscat, Al Buraimi, Al Dahirah, Al Dakhliya, South Al Sharqiya and North Al Sharqiya with chances of rain occasionally thundershowers associated with fresh winds, flash floods, and hail,” it added.
