On the afternoon of Tues September 24, 2013, a 7.7 magnitude earthquake affected Balochistan province in southern Pakistan, inflicting heavy destruction across many districts throughout quite a few minutes of powerful shaking and tremors. Unfortunately  minimum of 415 individuals were killed (some reports of internatioal say 600) and over a 1,000 are left homeless. however a weirder — if abundant less tragic — result of the quake that was shortly reported worldwide was the fulminant look of a replacement island off the coast, a mound of mud and effervescent paraffin seeps rising nearly twenty meters (70 feet) from the ocean surface.

“Our team found bubbles rising from the surface of the island which caught fire when a match was lit and we forbade our team to start any flame,” said Mohammad Danish, a marine biologist from Pakistan’s National Institute of Oceanography. ”It is methane gas.” 

That’s not all!! 2 different islands have come back up on the Balochistan coast. 

The two islands close to Ormara city area unit tiny.
