“Hajj Depression” in Oman leads to the death of two children, the loss of others and the evacuation of dozens of families from their homes (witness) | A homeland tweeting outside the flock


In conjunction with the continued impact of the Sultanate by the “low Hajj”, the Royal Oman Police announced the registration of two cases of two children drowning in puddles of water that gathered after rain near the homes of their relatives, one in Awqad in the Wilayat of Salalah and the other in the Wilayat of Jalan Bani Bu Hassan.

The Royal Oman Police, via Twitter, called on families to avoid leaving their children near pools of water and not to go out in rainy weather to avoid danger.

She added that the field teams of the Royal Oman Police and the Civil Defense and Ambulance Authority are continuing the search for four missing persons as a result of descending valleys in the wilayats of Tyre and Jalan Bani Bu Ali in the South Sharqiyah Governorate.

For its part, the Civil Defense Authority teams said that they are dealing with 21 reports of detention in valleys due to the air depression (the Hajj depression).

Video footage documented how rainwater and valleys surrounded the Prime Time Zone of compensation houses in Shinas. Dozens of families were evacuated from their homes to shelters after the valleys inundated many homes due to torrential rains.

Issuance of the fourth report on the weather

This comes while the Civil Aviation Authority has issued the fourth report on the weather in the coming days in the Sultanate of Oman.

According to the report, the latest analyzes of the National Center for Early Warning of Multiple Hazards show the continuation of the impact of an atmospheric depression from the Arabian Sea on the Sultanate’s airspace and will continue until Sunday, July 18, 2021.

It is likely that the flow and formation of clouds will continue over all governorates of the Sultanate, and chances of scattered rain, sometimes thunderstorms, accompanied by active downward winds and the flow of valleys.

The heavy rains are concentrated in the governorates of North Al Batinah and Dhofar, on the Al Hajar Mountains and adjacent areas, and on the coastal areas of the Sea of ​​Oman.

It is possible that the sea will be rough on the coasts of the Arabian Sea, with a maximum height of (3.0 – 4.0) meters, and an average wave on the coasts of the Sea of ​​​​Oman, with a maximum height of two meters.

The Civil Aviation Authority called on citizens and residents to take precautions during rains and the flow of valleys, to check the condition of the sea before entering it, and to follow up on its weather forecasts.

The “Hajj Depression” hashtag took the top spot in Oman and the Arabian Gulf via the Twitter platform, and tweets circulated dozens of video clips and photos documenting the size of the floods left by the rains resulting from the depression.

Most of the wilayats of the Sultanate of Oman witnessed heavy rains that led to massive floods that swamped public streets and caused material damage to some public facilities and private properties.
