A tropical depression started to affect Oman and Yemen from Thursday 28th May 2020 and is expected to continue till Monday. And unlike most storms, this depression is expected to gain strength after landfall due to brown ocean effect. More than 1000 mm of rain is expected in areas which receive from 80-200 mm annually.

1055 mm (41.53 in) of rain was recorded in Mount Samhan, Dhofar and it's very likely that there are some mountains which received much higher amounts but have no weather station.

This must be a lot of rain in this area. A desert getting this much could cause flooding.

On Twitter there are a lot of videos of extreme flooding in Salalah, Sadah, Mirbat and many other cities in Omani governorate of Dhofar. A few videos can also be found on YouTube.

Before the rains in the first video this region was a flat plain.
