At least nine people have died after tropical cyclone Shaheen battered Oman. The storm arrived in the area on Sunday, with winds between 120 and 150 km/h (75-93 mph) as its eye crossed land. Thousands have been evacuated from coastal areas and streets in the capital, Muscat, have been submerged. Infrastructure including electrical facilities and roads were damaged.

UNOOSA/UN-SPIDER requested the activation of the International Charter Space and Major Disasters on behalf of the Oman Civil Defense and Ambulance Authority. The Mohammad Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) of the United Arab Emirates served as a project manager.
