October 12, 2021

Muscat: Over 400 houses have been inspected by volunteer teams to restore electricity in the areas affected by cyclone Shaheen, National Committee for Emergency Management (NCEM) said.

'Volunteer teams of the Weyakom Al Khair campaign continue to work in the field to help those affected by cyclone Shaheen. They are fixing wiring and main switchboard malfunctions inside houses,' NCEM said in a statement.

The team includes a group of licensed technicians from among the Omani youths who are graduates of the Naqla programme, licensed technical volunteers, and a group of 50 electricians affiliated with the Engineering Services at the Ministry of Defence .

The number of homes that have been inspected has exceeded 430 since 11 October with the launch of the initiative. Electricity has been restored in some homes.

The electricity distribution companies in the affected areas have asked subscribers to contact them via the call centre to report malfunctions in the connections and not to deal with them without a licensed electrician.
