Now this is totally bizarre. A mystery tsunami came roaring ashore in the southern port city of Dayyer, Iran on March 19, 2017. It killed one person and at least 5 others are missing- presumably having been swept out to sea. There are a couple of videos of this event:
Having watched so many tsunami videos of the 2004 and 2011 earthquake events, I am pretty sure, and really- pretty certain- that what we are looking at in those videos is definitely a tsunami. Not storm surge. And yet the supposed cause of this was a storm some 1,000 miles away- so they claim. The speed of that water is the first clue.
But the bizarre thing is that no earthquake occurred to cause this. Because any earthquake large enough to cause this would have had to be over a 6.5, at the very least. And as we know, this would have registered on seismographs all over the region.
But there is nothing.
And so, what I believe happened is that most probably a small asteroid struck somewhere out in the Persian Gulf, and sent water flying. And I think they don't want to admit it, because of the embarrassment space agencies will face for not having detected it and not warned people. Not long ago we all remember what exploded over Russia. It was undetected as well.
I refuse to believe that much water, coming in at that speed, is caused from some storm 1,000 miles away. Just no. So man up, space agencies, and admit the truth. Another one slipped by you.
The female presenter of the news program smirked as he made the comments, but Zhirinovsky’s manner was far from jovial. Zhirinovsky made reference to the recent tsunami in Japan, suggesting that the “new weapons” to which he refers are related to weather control technology, which has been intensely studied by both the U.S. and Russia since the 1950′s and is commonly used today. Threatening to annex Georgia completely, Zhirinovsky warned, “And then there will be another tsunami, on the other side of the planet, in the Caucasus. Zhirinovsky’s reference to the Kuril Islands in connection with the devastating tsunami that hit Japan in March is a not so subtle suggestion that Russia had something to do with causing the natural disaster that killed thousands, led to the Fukushima crisis and threatened to derail Japan’s economic recovery.

Surely even a meteorite impact would give off a seismic reading?
well the authorities in Dayyer county in Busher Province said, strong winds from the sea landwards in a narrow corridor caused this.
Northern part of Persian Gulf shore is a mountainous region and strong winds causes such tsunamis occasionally. It happened a few years ago in the same region but there were no serious damage or injuries were reported.
Some damage also reported in Parsian county about 300 km to the south of Dayyer.

Huh? Please explain. Are you talking about shear waves?
