Tropical Cyclone Phet in Oman

Dear readers,

The first day of the cylcone has almost passed. It was category 4 this morning and reached category 1 in the afternoon, thanks god. The weather coditions are still not so stable and experts are kind of clueless on whether is it going to get stronger and comes towards Muscat or just changes its direction and move away towrards Pakistan & India.

I lost contanct with my family in another region in Oman since this morning. Last thing I heard is that many small house were almost destroyed. Palm trees were destroyed too. I can't express my feelings right at this moment, but I just hope it's all going to be alright.

A group of facebookers started this page for updates about the tropical storm.

And here are pics of the clouds yesterday when they began to form yesterday afternoon:

It's so sunny it's almost impossible to believe that there was a cyclone passing by a day ago !!!

Muscat is fine except for some areas like Qurum.

I heard Sharqiya was affected severely. May allah help them pass through these tough times ...

Yeah thet's true...3sa allah ye3enhum.

Thanks god the cyclone passed without severe damges in Muscat. I believe that people were well prepared this time, they learned a lot from Gonu's experience.

I read an article the other day, it says that June would become an annual season for cyclones in Arab Sea area. So good luck people :p
