Brief Information of the eyewitness and the interview situation

I was 10-11 years old when early in the morning around 3 a.m. and after approximately 30 minutes sea waves hit the coastline. However, sea water went much behind the shoreline before it came forward and attacked the population.

Interview result (text of the interview: Purely descriptive)

I woke up because of the earthquake. One old person ‘Ustaad Gundi” was trapped in his collapse house and we the neighbors rushed to rescue him from the rubble. Someone shouted that sea waves are coming, so we all rushed for evacuation. Around 10-11 people died in Ormara because of the earthquake and tsunami including all family members of Mustafa. My house was inundated being located near shoreline. Height of waves could be 14’ feet roughly but waves could not move ahead of the Secret Tomb of “Naik Noor Mohammad”.
