Tsunami waves of local origin, which account for most fatalities due to tsunami worldwide, pose a natural hazard on shores of the Arabian Sea. This hazard was demonstrated on the morning of November 28, 1945 (local time). An earthquake of magnitude 8.1 resulted from fault rupture along the Makran Subduction Zone. An ensuing tsunami caused hundreds of fatalities in what is now Pakistan, additional deaths in Mumbai (Bombay). Damage was reported from Iran and Oman as well.
