Cyclone Luban: Heavy rains and floods expected in Oman, as Luban moves towards Yemen

 The Public Authority for Civil Aviation has issued its fifth warning about tropical storm Luban.

According to a report in the Times of Oman, the storm's centre has been found to be located 300 kilometers from Salalah. The speed of the wind has been recorded to be 50-55 knots in the vicinity of the storm centre and the storm is moving towards Yemen, close to the coast of Dhofar.  


Due to predicted heavy rains accompanied by high winds and runoff of the wadis in Dhofar, citizens and residents have been warned against crossing wadis and have been asked to avoid low lying areas.

Data also revealed that heavy rainfall and occasional thundershower is likely to affect the governorate of Dhofar on Saturday and Sunday, with fresh winds of 30-40 knots, and gusts or gale winds along the mountains. The sea will continue to be rough with a maximum wave height of 6-8 meters.

Authorities have also warned people not to enter the sea during this period, and to follow warnings issued by the body.

There are chances of an indirect impact on southern parts of the Al Wusta governorate, that will receive scattered rain and occasional heavy rainfall, in addition to fresh winds of 25 to 30 knots in the next two days.
