Historic landfall expected. Cyclone #Shaheen is about to strike Oman hard where no recorded cyclone has struck before, especially with this intensity.

Bizarre looking at a cyclone with an eye feature surrounded by desert.
Some great info in this article, really is unprecedented in modern times.

Notice that Oman has observed strong cyclones before, notable and devastating like Gonu for example.

But we haven't seen one this far west in the Gulf of Oman before.

تسمية الأعاصير المدارية

يمنح المركز الإقليمي لمتابعة الأعاصير في شمال المحيط الهندي اسماً لكل عاصفة مدارية من أجل تمييزها عما قبلها وبعدها،
وحتى يسهل التعامل مع الحالة الجوية بين أروقة الجهات المعنية؛ بما يتعلق بالمتابعة والتحذيرات، ويعزز تأهب الدول المستهدفة من الإعصار. Image
وتُستخدم أسماء نساء ورجال بالتناوب مؤخراً،
علماً أنه منذ عام 1953م بدأ إطلاق أسماء إناث على العواصف المدارية حتى عام 1979م، بعدها بدأ إطلاق أسماء الذكور. Image
بدأت تسمية الأعاصير المدارية فوق شمال المحيط الهندي و #بحر_العرب عام 2004، وكان عدد أعضاء الفريق 8 دول فقط:
ووفقاً للترتيب الأبجدي الإنجليزي هي: #بنغلاديش، #الهند، #مالديف، #ميانمار، #عمان #باكستان #سريلانكا #تايلند

ثم انظم لهم مجدداً كل من #السعودية #قطر #الإمارات #اليمن ImageImageImage
