Tropical storm likely to hit Oman

Muscat, June 12, 2014

A tropical storm is likely to hit the Omani coast in the next three or four days, the sultanate's meteorology officials have said.

The storm Nanauk is likely to hit Oman between Ras Al Hadd and Ras Madrakah on June 15, Oman's directorate general of meteorology and air navigation and Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA), were quoted as saying by a Times of Oman report.

The impact of the cyclone is expected from Saturday to Monday, the report said.

The storm, also called Tropical Cyclone Two, was centred about 850km from Masirah Island and had an estimated surface wind speed of 65 knots and is moving west-northwest at 6 mph across the Arabian Sea.

The storm is expected to bring in 100-300mm rainfall in 24 hours all over the Sultanate, an official was quoted as saying.
