Muscat: A broken main water pipe in Seeb is affecting supplies to Al Hail, according to the Public Authority for Electricity and Water.
Residents in Al Hail North spent most of the afternoon without water. A spokesman for PAEW said it could possibly be midnight before the broken pipe is repaired and advised residents to ration water.
One resident said: "We are now hoping what is in our tanks will be enough to see us through until it is fixed. It's either that or we will have to hire a tanker to come fill the tanks up again."
