Rescue teams in Oman continue their search for a missing person in a valley in Wilayat al-Amerat after he went missing during tropical storm Shaheen, Oman News Agency (ONA) reported on Monday.
Earlier in the day, another missing person was found in Wadi al-Sail in the Wilayat of al-Rustaq in the South al-Batinah Governorate.
In addition, the state news agency reported that the country’s National Center for Emergency Management rescued workers from a building made of unstable materials that collapsed whilst they were on site in the Wilayat of Suwaiq. The victims were then transferred to a shelter and were reported to be in good health.
