Dhofar Tsunami Warning

As most of you know, 28 countries are expected to be affected by the earthquake/tsunami that hit Sumatra early this morning. An 8.7 magnitude earthquake struck about 200 miles off the coast of Sumatra. Another one just happened now with a magnitude of 8.2 according to Oman News Agency (ONA).

The coast of Dhofar & Al Wusta will probably be affected tonight starting at 7 p.m. ONA has advised all citizens to be prepared and to stay away from the ocean from 7 p.m tonight and until tomorrow morning. 

This probably means that tide will go out a few hundred meters. That's what happened in the 2004 tsunami. 

Please pray for those affected. Let this not turn into another catastrophe.  


  1. The warnings have all been called off. Nothing to worry about here in Oman and, luckily it looks like nowhere else close to the epicentre is adversely affected either.

  2. Assalamu alaikoum, I just discovered your blog through the tsunami warning, inshallah the threat is now diminished...I'm happy to discover your blog.
