A se­vere rain­storm passed through the wilayat of Ibri in Dhahi­rah on Mon­day af­ter­noon in­jur­ing peo­ple and dam­ag­ing pub­lic util­ity ser­vices.

The rain­storm re­sulted in in­juries to 11 peo­ple. Nine per­sons were given first-aid while an­other two were ad­mit­ted to a hospi­tal for fur­ther check­ups.

The rain­storm also dam­aged ve­hi­cles, build­ing roofs, traf­fic signs, elec­tric­ity poles, street lights and trees. Gov­ern­ment agen­cies and pri­vate sec­tor in­sti­tu­tions, cit­i­zens and res­i­dents pooled in their ef­forts to re­store the dam­aged pub­lic ser­vices.

The ROP has asked peo­ple to fol­low weather re­ports be­fore ven­tur­ing out.
