Powerful cyclone strikes Oman, Yemen; 6 dead, 30 missing 27.5.2018 General News
A cyclone more powerful than any previously recorded in southern Oman slammed into the Gulf country and neighbouring Yemen yesterday, deluging a major city with nearly three years' worth of rainfall in single day. The storm killed at least six people while more than 30 remain missing, officials said. Cyclone Mekunu caused flash flooding that tore away whole roadways and submerged others in Salalah, Oman's third-largest city, stranding drivers. Strong winds knocked over street lights and tore away roofing. Rushing waters from the rain and storm surges flooded typically dry creek beds. The holiday destination's now-empty tourist beaches were littered with debris and foam from the churning Arabian Sea. Three people, including a 12-year-old girl, died in Oman, and another two bodies were recovered from the Yemeni island of Socotra.

CIL, Railways rush coal to Dadri, Badarpur power plants 27.5.2018 General News
With coal stock of some power stations in the national capital region falling to an alarming level, Coal India and Railways are rushing coal supplies to Dadri and Badarpur power plants of the NTPC. A Coal India statement issued tonight said against the linked requirement of seven rakes to these plants, movement of at least 10 rakes are planned to avert the crisis. The problem started as the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) was forced to commence generation from these two plants all of a sudden with rise in power demand due to heat wave conditions in the country. The government has also instructed the CIL, Singareni Collieries Co Ltd and Railway to attach top most priority in allocation of rakes for coal movement to power plants till such time the demand from coal-based thermal power plants gets stabilised with the onset of monsoon and increase in hydel and wind power.

Powerful cyclone lashes Oman, Yemen; 3 dead, 40 missing 26.5.2018 General News
Cyclone Mekunu blew into the Arabian Peninsula early today, drenching arid Oman and Yemen, cutting off power lines and leaving at least three dead and 40 missing, officials said. Portions of Salalah, Oman's third-largest city, lost electricity as the cyclone made landfall. The Arabian Sea churned Saturday morning, sending mounds of sea foam into the air. The waves ate into one tourist beach, pulling hunks of it away and toppling thatch umbrellas cemented into the sand. As Mekunu barreled overhead, the eye of the storm provided a moment's respite. At one luxury hotel, which already had evacuated its guests, workers sat down early for a traditional "suhoor," a meal Muslims eat before sunrise during the holy fasting month of Ramadan. They laughed and shared plates by flashlight in a darkened ballroom, the cyclone's wind a dull roar behind their clatter. Three people, including a 12-year-old girl, died in Oman, and 40 others are missing from the Yemeni island of Socotra, which earlier ...

Cyclone Mekunu to be 'extremely severe' on landfall in Oman 25.5.2018 General News
Cyclone Mekunu neared the Arabian Peninsula today as its outer bands dumped heavy rain and bent palm trees in Oman, a sign of the approaching storm's power after earlier thrashing the Yemeni island of Socotra. Already at least 40 people, including Yemenis, Indians and Sudanese, were reported missing on Socotra, where flash floods washed away thousands of animals and cut power lines on the isle in the Arabian Sea. Officials feared some may be dead. The cyclone is expected to make landfall early Saturday near Salalah, Oman's third-largest city and home to some 200,000 people close to the sultanate's border with war-ravaged Yemen.
