Oman weather: Fog covers Oman, reduces visibility

Muscat: Visibility will be reduced to less than 1,000 metres due to fog in different parts of Oman, the meteorology department has said.
“Fog formation over governorates of Al Buraimi, Al Dahirah, South and North Al Sharqiya and Al Wusta will lead to poor visibility,” the Oman meteorology department has said in its advisory.
For the last one week, fog has enveloped different parts of Oman leading to disruption of traffic movement.
“The heavy fog had disrupted traffic in Barka, Khabourah, Saham, Musanah and Sohar.
“Many motorists delayed their trips. One of my friends stayed with me on Tuesday night as he didn’t want to take risk by driving on a foggy night back to Muscat,” Yousuf Salim, a businessman in Sohar, said.
The Royal Oman Police (ROP) has been issuing regular warnings to motorists to drive cautiously during the fog formation.
The meteorology department has predicted fog formation in the next two days. See also >A5
