Mekunu, one of the strongest to hit the Middle Eastern country, was recorded as being equivalent to a category 3 hurricane.

The NCM also predicts that Mekunu will intensify into a Category 2 cyclone over the next 12 hours, with an expected wind speed of between 155 to 165 km/h.

Oman news agency reported today that the cyclone has retreated enough to allow air traffic to resume in accordance to global safety standards.
