Sub-Committees for Emergency Management Activated

Muscat, 25 Jul (ONA) --- The National Committee for Emergency Management announced today the activation of sub-committees in the Governorates of Muscat, North A’Sharqiyah, A’Dakhiliyah, A’Dhahirah, North Al Batinah, South Al Batinah, Al Buraimi and Musandam.

The move aims to increase preparedness for all eventualities that can be caused by the expected tropical condition.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) will see the start of the effects of the tropical condition on the Sultanate of Oman with columns of rainclouds predicted to overcast the skies and rainfall ranging between 20mm to 100mm. The effects will begin in the Governorates of Muscat, North A’Sharqiyah and South A’Sharqiyah, then extending gradually to cover the Governorates of A’Dakhiliyah, North Al Batinah, South Al Batinah, Musandam, A’Dhahirah and Al Buraimi.

The effected governorates are expected to witness varied rainfall, low visibility, active winds measuring 40-80 km/h which can cause unfixed objects to fly and wadis to overflow during the next two days. Sea Waves are expected to reach 3-4 meters high.
