According to the Public Authority of Civil Aviation’s Directorate General of Meteorology, “There is to be continued heavy rains of varying abundance, over the coasts of the Sea of Oman, with the majority of it being concentrated over the governorates of Muscat and South Ash Sharqiyah, particularly near Ras Al Hadd, during the next six hours, which will cause wadis to fill up and overflow, leading to moving debris and formation of stagnant pools of water.”
