Muscat: The National Multi-Hazard Early Warning Centre at Oman’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) issued a statement on inclement weather that could possibly affect Oman from April 29 to May 1. The Met office had also issued a weather alert, on thunderstorm and rains in certain parts of Oman, during the past two days with one issued today as well.
A statement by CAA said: “The National Multi-Hazard Early Warning Centre weather analysis indicates that the Sultanate may be affected by a trough of low pressure (Al Khair Trough) starting from Thursday, April 29 to Saturday, May 1, 2021.”
Close on the heels of this announcement, Oman’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources called on “farmers, livestock breeders and beekeepers to take the necessary precautions to ensure their own safety apart from ensuring the safety of their livestock and beehives. It is urged to keep them away from the trajectory of wadis’ flow, or valley streams, and not to leave the beehives in low-lying areas.”
