New island pops up from the sea near the coast of Sonmiani beach in Balochistan
Islands have previously appeared on this spot due to geological activity.
The island’s emergence was confirmed by the Technical Advisor (Marine Fisheries) of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Muhammad Moazzam Khan, on Thursday.
According to the WWF advisor, islands had previously popped up from the exact location between the years 2000 and 2010.
Khan explained that the islands appear due to excessive geological activities in the area.
He added that some islands, mostly small ones, usually disappear after some time.
It is pertinent to note that most of the islands in the world have been formed due to the earth’s geological activities.
The island was 30 to 40 feet above sea level and was around 100 feet wide.
The island was named Zalzala Koh (Earthquake Island), and it attracted the interest of many geologists.
However, as many geologists had predicted, the island started sinking back into the sea.
By the end of 2016, the baby island had been entirely submerged under the sea.
