Seven more people have been killed in Oman due to heavy winds and rain following the landslide in Dubai O tropical storm Shaheen, the National Emergency Committee said on its official Twitter account on Monday.

Four people, including a child, were killed on Sunday.

Recent data show that the storm has stopped, the Civil Aviation Authority said on Monday, warning that scattered rain is still expected.

It urges citizens to cross the valley carefully and avoid low-lying areas.

Omani authorities said Shaheen was blowing at 75-93 mph when the storm’s eyes crossed the ground. It was throwing waves up to 32 feet.

Video footage from Omani broadcasters showed vehicles sinking as people tried to get through the muddy brown flood waters. State TV showed people being rescued from the flooded area by helicopter. People were walking along the flooded road, while a tractor was plowing through the mud.

Some areas were expected to receive up to 20 inches of rain, which increased the risk of flooding.

The meteorological service said on Twitter that the cyclones were constantly losing their strength on land and that Shaheen had become a tropical storm.
