It has just started to rain here in our area in the Muscat region for about 20-30 minutes with a strong breeze.
Since it is night-time, nothing can actually been seen at all.
We have told that such signs are the beginning of the storm's presence in the area. From hereon, it should be at least another 3-4 hours until it hit peak levels.
Rains here have been moderate to drizzly so far but haven't stopped since the minute they started.
There has been a report of grounding several airlines such as Oman Air, Gulf Air and Air India - but no such word about closing down the airport. These flights could take off in the morning and possibly moved to Salalah's Civil Airport, the report says. (Gulf News)
