Interview result (text of the interview: Purely descriptive)

Duration of the waves was five minutes. Earthquake happened at night but the waves arrived after Fajr prayer Adan (dawn). Earthquake was strong and locks of the doors were striking and making noise. Water of the sea receded after earthquake and approximately after one hour waves strike the shore. It seemed that sea came forward on each waves stuck, went behind and attacked again. My house was situated where at present Jetty has been constructed, it is on higher ground so was not affected by waves. We did not experience winds as we do in other kind of sea storms (cyclone). Most of the houses built in low lying area with matting and wood were destroyed.
