Cyclone Phet (it looks so large ) has cruised over north-eastern Oman creating floods in low lying areas and torrential wadis near the mountains .

Fortunately the intensity of the storm is less than Guno 3 years ago – and also every one in Oman knows what damage a storm can do so the tragic deaths – so far less .

It looks as if the infrastructure in Muscat has held up better than before though in Quriyat on Friday there is no electricity – and perhaps Sur and Ras al Hadd will also have a similar problem
