Reports of a tsunami hitting South Iran on
the internet appear to be incorrect, as no quake large or small has not been
registered in the area yesterday. A magnitude
4.2 in Turkmenistan on the Northern Iranian border was recorded yesterday
afternoon but that’s more than 2,000 miles away on the Caspian Sea.
However large waves have been filmed
smashing into the port city of Dayyer in the southern Iranian province of
Bushehr where at least one person has lost his life and five others have gone
Search and relief operations were ongoing
to establish the fate of the five missing with divers deployed to the scene.
Deputy Interior Minister and Head of the
National Disaster Management Organization Esmaeil Najjar told IRNA that the incident
in Dayyer and Assaluyeh damaged several residential homes, boats and ships.
He added that the waves were estimated to
be more than three meters high.
