3 killed in Oman as Cyclone Shaheen batters the sultanate

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Oct 3: A cyclone battered Oman on Sunday, lashing the sultanate with high winds and rain as the storm killed three people, including a child. Cyclone Shaheen made landfall Sunday night just off from Muscat, Oman’s capital, with winds reaching up to 150 kph (93 mph), according to the state-run Oman News Agency. The cyclone quickly lost strength and forecasters downgraded it to a tropical storm. It left flooding damage, forcing some to evacuate and their homes. Flights had stopped across the sultanate, which sits on the eastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula. (AP)
