The Ministry of Education has decided to postpone examinations as tropical storm Mekunu nears the southern coast.

According to sources, the Ministry of Education will find alternative dates for the General Education Diploma examination. Dr. Madiha bint Ahmed Al Shaibaniyah, Minister of Education, presided over the emergency meeting of the Central Committee for Crisis Management.

The storm, which is expected to intensify into a Category Two cyclone code-named Mekunu, could severely affect parts of the Dhofar Governorate and its capital city, Salalah, with the Wusta Governorate and surrounding areas likely to be hit too.
