Almost three years' worth of rain were dumped on the city of Salalah by Cyclone Mekunu in 24 hours, with the cyclone also hitting Yemen.
"Indian Embassy Team in Salalah has confirmed that as per Royal Oman Police, mortal remains of one (Shamsher Ali) of two missing Indian have been found and the search for the other (Madhu) is underway". Large areas of Dhofar and al-Wusta provinces were flooded due to which people living near both the areas had to be moved to safety, BBC reported.
Rains are expected to continue for two more days, drenching the area with more than 100 millimeters (four inches) of rain, nearly six times its annual average, Amman-based weather experts WASM said on Twitter.
Authorities in Oman have said they expected the cyclone to pass over the city of Salalah on Friday night.
The cyclone also hit areas in southeast Yemen neighboring Oman. However, Mekunu was downgraded to category 1 after losing some of its strength.
