Earthquake Causes New Island To Rise Off Ocean Floor

September 25, 2013

I haven't posted anything about earthquakes in over a year because there are too many of them to keep up with. I'm not talking about little tremors either, I mean 6.0 or higher. But this major earthquake (7.8) that hit a remote part of western Pakistan (killing at least 200 people) has created a new island just off the country's southern coast. It literally rose off the ocean floor in a single day.
