Brief Information of the eyewitness and the interview situation

The tribes living in this area at that time are still settled here. The people used to cultivate rice and wheat which is not possible today because of severe shortage of sweat water. Population of this area was much greater than today but now people have migrated from here to other areas in search of work.

Interview result (text of the interview: Purely descriptive)

The sea water (storm) caused huge damage in the area but I don’t remember the exact extent. However, what I can recall is that many boats were damaged and drowned, cattle washed away, people died and even dead bodies were hung over the trees brought by huge waves.
