Tsunami in Balochistan

The earthquake measuring 8.6 on the Richter scale that hit Balochistan on the 28th November 1945, at 05:26 PST, caused a tsunami in the Arabian Sea. It was centred 97.6 km SSW of Pasni in Balochistan. The quake triggered a huge tsunami that caused great damage to the entire Makran coastal region. The tsunami reached a height of 40 feet in some Makran fishing ports and killed more than 4,000 people. This was the last major tsunami–generating earthquake in the Arabian Sea.
