  4. Cyclone Phet hit Oman’s coast on Friday killing two people including an Indian and halting the oil and gas production. When Cyclone Phet made the landfall winds gusting up to 200 kilometers an hour and massive floods hit the region.

    Heavy rains and strong winds knocked down electric poles and kept oil tankers away from Oman’s al-Fahl port.

    Oman’s liquefied Natural Gas factory was closed as a preventive measure. People have been asked to stay indoors till the cyclone moves away.

    Dry river banks filled up with the water that came down from the mountains and Omani authorities fear that the river banks will continue to rise.

    Cyclone Phet, which is now moving towards the northeast off the coast of Oman, has turned deadly despite being downgraded to a category one storm.

    Gujurat’s coastal district have been put on a high alert as Cyclone Phet is likely to head north-eastwards towards Pakistan after hitting Oman coast.

    Met officials say that the Phet laid centred about 950 km west of Naliya in Kutch. Squall winds with speed up to 60 kmph are likely to blow along and off the north Gujurat coast.

    Fishermen have been advised not to venture into the sea for the next two days. The government had already evacuated over 12,000 people from the coastal districts. Six teams of National Disaster Response Force and eight teams of State Reserve Police have been deployed in Saurashtra and Kutch and in Gandhinagar.

    Eight persons have died so far due to affects of the cyclone in Gujarat.

    Monsoon is also likely to revive and gather momentum after the effects of Cyclone Phet subside. The rain-bearing clouds will start to move over India around June 10-12.

    The meteorological office said that wind speed was 120kph near Masirah, and the cyclone was expected to move away from Oman, leaving the country relatively unscathed.
