NASA have released a few images showing an Island that newly formed off the coast of Pakistan on September 24th. The island formed after a devastating earthquake struck mainland Pakistan causing over 500 fatalities, RT reports. However, one of the consequences of that quake was this new island which formed 380 kilometres from its epicentre in Paddi Zirr Bay near Gwadar, Pakistan, in the Arabian Sea.

Two comparative shots of the same area just a few months between, April 17th above and September 26th below, show the newly formed island popping up offshore. The new island is called “Zalzala Jazeera” literally meaning earthquake island. Scientists say the formation of the new island in the area is due to the relatively low water level of 15 to 20 metres.

The Zalzala Jazeera island is described by scientists as “just a big pile of mud from the seafloor that got pushed up”. The island will not last very long and scientists claim the island will remain above sea level for about a year before sinking back to the bottom again.

Local people have visited the new island with boats in abundance.

    It was a tragedy but also a reminder of who’s actually in charge of our planet. Mankind isn’t nearly as good as he likes to think he is.

      The main problem really is that the buildings don’t follow proper building regulations so they are made cheaply and can’t withstand earthquakes. If they were built properly like they are in the USA or Japan it would be less of an issue. The problem with that is they can’t afford too as it is very expensive.

        It’s the same old story of the less fortunate having to take it in the teeth but no one, including the richest of the rich is immune to the power of mother nature. As tragic as it is, it’s happened before and will happen again.

          if you’re rich enough you can build a space station… then nature can’t do shit against you
          but meteors and space debris can still hurt there 🙁

            You don’t consider that nature?
