Oman’s Civil Defence and Ambulance Authority (CDAA) said all tourist locations, which were closed on 10 July due to heavy rains, will be reopened.
“With reference to the statement issued on 10 July 2022 regarding the closure of tourist sites due to the impact of weather conditions, the authority would like to inform all that the tourist sites will be open starting from the date of publishing this announcement, except for Mughsail Beach, due to the continued national efforts to search for missing persons,” the agency said.
CDAA stressed the need to adhere to public safety guidelines, to ensure the safety of lives and property.
The Royal Oman Police (ROP) said the Darbat Park in Salalah will be open from Thursday, 14 July for visitors.
The ROP reiterated the importance of keeping an eye on children and maintaining extreme caution during torrential rains.
The Police on Wednesday said that 16 people lost their lives and 40 were rescued in different governorates during the rains that resulted from the trough from the monsoon impact over the Arabian Sea, which enhanced the local cloud development over Al Hajar Mountains since July 7.
