Muscat suspended all flights and residents were evacuated from coastal areas. Heavy rain flooded the streets and traffic came to a standstill. Power supply was disrupted at many places. As the storm whipped up waves up to 10 metres along the coast a ship sank at Sultan Qaboos port. United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are on alert. The Abu Dhabi Government asked people not to leave their homes.

MUSCAT, Oct 4: At least 12 people have died in the wake of tropical cyclone Shaheen lashing the Oman coast and Iran since Sunday with a wind speed of 120 to 150 km per hour. All flights to and from the Oman Capital Muscat have been suspended and residents evacuated from coastal areas. Heavy rain flooded the streets. And the storm whipped up waves up to 10 metres along the coast.

Vehicles were submerged as muddy flood waters rushed across streets. The cyclone slammed Al Batinah South, and the States of Musanah and Suwaiq. In al-Qurm, the power supply was cut and 2,700 people were put up in emergency shelters. Private vehicles were prohibited on the roads in the Capital and were open only to vehicles on emergency and humanitarian work.

A ship sank at Sultan Qaboos port and its crew were rescued, the National Committee for Emergency Management said on Twitter.

United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia

In the oil-exporting country's neighbouring United Arab Emirates (UAE), precautionary measures were being taken along beaches and valleys where torrential rains were expected.

Employees in the city of Al Ain on the border with Oman had been urged to work remotely on Monday. Residents were warned not to leave homes except for emergencies, the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said. "Authorities are working proactively around the clock to evaluate residential units in expected affected areas and transport families to safe locations until it is safe to return," it said.

Saudi Arabia issued cyclone warning in several regions from Monday to Friday in anticipation of high winds and flooding.
