This is a new island created by the massive earthquake in Pakistan

People have already started exploring the land which emerged out of the Arabian Sea yesterday.

A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE in Pakistan yesterday killed 328 people (according to latest reports from provincial officials) and destroyed communities in the remote area of the southwest.

The 7.7 magnitude quake also created a new island off the country’s south coast.

Gwadar’s local government office issued photos of the new land today, showing people walking on what used to be part of the Arabian sea.
