On the Gwadar coastline, the quake created a small island about half a mile into the sea near an area called 'Jhanda', according to Express News.
The newly appearing island is said to have a mountainous terrain rising up to a hundred feet. A large crowd was seen gathering at the site to see the new island.


WTF? How freakin' awesome is that!?!

Scary/awesome, something like that.  It's pretty incredible, that's for sure.

Wait, if you're the first person on that island, do you get to claim it? Do you need a flag?

Sure, but you may have to fight Cthulhu for it.

It's well within their territorial waters, sorry.

But we need a "Badass!" tag on this one.

I'd like to see mythbusters or someone take on this 100 foot island after a measly 7.7 earthquake.

Specifically that there wasn't a resulting world-class tsunami that then put half of Pakistan underwater.

If it is real (the new island) then it is awesome as some have said but I have my doubts. Do we have a geologist here that can tell us if something like that is possible with that type of earthquake and without causing some kind of tsunami?

IIRC there's another island in Hawaii that will rise to the surface in the next 500 years or so.  AFAIK it is possible with the right push.

I've heard of it happening before (by volcanic action rather than earthquakes), but the new islands typically erode pretty fast from wave action and disappear to become a shallow bar or reef.

Is this where the new quest hub is?
 
2013-09-24 03:54:41 PM
You won't mind if I wait for some reputable sources to confirm this new island with a mountainous terrain rising up to a hundred feet sprouting from this will you?

Not that I don't believe the reports, I just don't believe the reports.

What is that freighter doing in the middle of the island?  Generally, they are for use on bodies of water.

Seriously. This is incredible. Just imagine the amount of energy that took. Then think of how much time and effort it would have taken us to create an island with those dimensions.

And Mother Nature did that in SECONDS.

Carlin was right. We may cause this planet some discomfort, but she'll brush us off like so much lint one day. This planet don't f*ck around.
