Cyclone Shaheen: UAE Emergency Services Are Braced And Dubai Communities Issued Warning

Yesterday we saw the devastating effects of Cyclone Shaheen as it ripped through Oman’s capital Muscat and leaving three deaths in its wake, according to  Oman’s National Committee for Emergency Management (NCEM). Two people tragically lost their lives in a landslide and a child died in flash flooding. We saw winds speeds up to 140km/per hour and now the UAE remains on high alert as the Cyclone is expected to hit the Emirates today, especially the eastern coast and south of the country.
