The Omani regions were recently exposed to a new depression, and its effect is expected to last for four days. However, this weather event is not strange for these regions, as the Sultanate of Oman is regularly exposed to weather fluctuations and sudden changes in the weather.

Individuals can also take a number of preventive measures to reduce the effects of these weather fluctuations, such as securing property and following general advice provided by the concerned authorities.

How to avoid the risk of thunderstorms and torrential rain

The Kingdom is currently witnessing heavy and thundery rains accompanied by active downwinds, which endangers many people, especially those who live near valleys and reefs.

In order to avoid the danger of torrents, floods and thunderstorms, some of the following guidelines must be followed:

  • Low-lying areas should be avoided during thunderstorms, because heavy rains make valleys and reefs filled with running water, and thus can cause floods.
  • When thunderstorms fall heavily, you should avoid crossing valleys and reefs, and if you need to cross, make sure the strength of the current and wear shoes for walking in the water.
  • Swimming in the sea should be avoided during the alert period, because high waves and strong winds make the sea dangerous for swimmers.
  • Caution must be taken during thunderstorms, and areas exposed to rapid water flow should be avoided.
  • Attention must be paid to the decrease in horizontal visibility due to the rising of dust when thunderstorms fall, and caution must be taken on highways, leaving a sufficient distance between cars.
  • Everyone should stay up to date on weather developments and get information from reliable sources.
  • We all recall the need for cooperation and solidarity in facing these difficult circumstances, and we hope that everyone will be able to overcome these challenges in safety and peace.

Accordingly, the authority called on everyone to exercise caution during the expected period of rain, to follow the necessary preventive measures, to check the sea condition before sailing, and to follow up on its weather forecasts to maintain safety.
