The eye of the storm was about 60km from Muscat early in the morning and it was carrying top winds of 120kmph or more, a joint statement by the country’s hazard, weather and civil aviation agencies said.

The storm’s centre was expected to hit land during the late afternoon and evening, bringing very high winds and heavy rainfall, but the outer bands of the system were already being felt.
