When it rains, it pours

Thunderstorms and strong winds battered the Sultanate over the weekend, with the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) on Monday reporting the tally of emergency calls received at 113 in the two-day period.

Uprooted trees blocking roads and falling on vehicles and properties, and roofs being blown off were among the main concerns.

Firefighters were deployed to affected roads to clear out debris to allow traffic to flow again.
