Interview result (text of the interview: Purely descriptive)

The island appeared in 1945 was a little less in size and height as compared to the new one. The people who were in the sea for fishing also observed disturbance and strange behavior of the sea. I did not go for fishing that day but were at home and awake when the earthquake happened. Most of the people were sleeping because of very early morning however who were awake felt sever shaking which made difficult for them to stand or even sit stable on the ground. There was no rain but sea storm happened due to an earthquake around Fajr prayer time (before dawn). The earthquake caused sudden development of an Island similar to one you see now appeared after recent Avaran earthquake (Sep 24, 2013). Sea water receded first and came forward to attack in 1945 event. It happened also after Avaran Earthquake but the phenomenon was very small scale as compared to what happened in 1945.
