"One area of northeast Oman received as much as 450mm (17.7 inches), while Pakistan received between 150-300mm (5.9-11.8 inches) as Phet made landfall there this past weekend.
Phet made a landfall at OMAN on June 4 and then turned towards Pakistan. This route prevented the cyclone from consuming all the moisture in the arabian sea which is required for the monsoon formation. GFS models of 00z 30th May the last I had seen as I was on a leave were indicating that phet w'd move North as a result METD WEATHER delayed the monsoon onset dates. But since this path was all together like Laila which also moved towards AP and then from Orrissa entered Bay of Bengal, monsoon was saved.
Phet was a Very severe Cyclonic storm which caused 44 deaths in Oman and Pakistan in total and 440 million US Dollar damage. Lowest pressure recorded was 970mb and 250km/hr 3 minute sustained winds were in it.
