This explains why 2007's Tropical Cyclone Gonu and 2010's Tropical Cyclone Phet made landfall hit almost exactly 3 years apart.
The results showed that the model with the COSMIC measurements more precisely simulated the track of Gonu, with COSMIC estimates of upper-troposphere temperature and lower-troposphere moisture proving particularly valuable in forecasting the storm's track.
In Muscat and the coastal areas, flooding and mudflows from Gonu severely damaged local infrastructure, including bridges, roads, electricity, and telephone networks.
We were very slightly touched by Gonu but it had no bad effect.
The Bahrain-based firm said its results included a "net impact of $9.2m from Cyclone Gonu", pointing out the rare natural disaster caused an estimated $800m of insured losses in Oman.

The Federation of the GCC Chambers of Commerce plans to organise an investment conference in the Sultanate of Oman to discuss ways to kick-start Omani economy battered by super cyclone Gonu.

Oman's insurance market was able to absorb greater risks of motor vehicle insurance by expanding the insurance cover of the comprehensive insurance policy to cover natural calamities after the experience of the Cyclone Gonu in 2007.
The bank provided support during previous cyclones that hit the Sultanate including cyclone Gonu. As we all know that cyclone Mekunu left damages on properties, the Board of Directors contributed with OMR1 million in a demonstration of our support to the citizens in Dhofar and Wusta governorates and to repair the damages in their properties." The amount will be managed in coordination with Oman Charity Organisation.
Rainfall in 2007 due to Cyclone Gonu claimed 49 lives, which was followed by Cyclone Phet in 2010 that claimed 24 lives in the Sultanate.
