Heavy rain hit several areas in the Sultanate of Oman on Monday, causing an unprecedented run-off of wadis. The floods submerged a number of districts, triggering landslides.

The incessant rainfall paralysed traffic on several roads, according to local media.

The Omani Meteorological Department said that parts of the mountainous areas in the governorates of Al Buraimi, Al Dhahirah, Al Dakhiliyah, North and South Batinah witnessed rain of varying intensity that led to flooded valleys.
