Interview result (text of the interview: Purely descriptive)

Around 70 years before, I remember at 3 a.m., a strong earthquake happened and 30 minutes after the EQ the sea waves attacked the city. I was at home with my family, sleeping when earthquake shook the house and my mother woke me up to run outside the house. Earthquake was so strong that mountains tear apart at some places and cracks developed on ground from which water blown out at various points. We evacuated near old graveyard where many others were already gathered, scared of the strong ground shaking, there we saw fire coming out of Hingol Mountains and after that the sea waves attacked the city. Big size fish like sharks and whales brought into the land by sea water
