Deadly Cyclone Shaheen Floods Streets in Northeastern Oman

Floodwater swamped parts of Oman on October 3 and 4 as Cyclone Shaheen brought heavy rain to the country.

Early on October 4, local authorities in Oman changed Shaheen’s status from a cyclone to a tropical storm, and later to a depression. An update in the early afternoon said the “direct effects” of the storm were over.
