A new volcanic island on the Methis Shoal in Tonga in the South Pacific Ocean? According to some eyewithnesses which claim they were the first to see a volcanic island forming a day out from Neiafu, Tonga when they were sailing towards Fiji in August.
WELLINGTON, New Zealand - A new volcanic island has emerged from the ocean near Tonga in recent weeks, according to eyewitness reports from two vessels that traveled through what one called a vast field of floating pumice spewed by the same eruption.

The crew of the Maiken, a yacht that sailed out of the northern Tongan islands group of Vava'u in August, reported on Aug. 12 that they saw streaks of stone floating in the water before "we sailed into a vast, many miles wide, belt of densely packed pumice."

"We were so fascinated and busy taking pictures that we plowed a couple of hundred meters into this surreal floating stone field before we realized that we had to turn back," a crewman wrote

Wasn't there a lot of Eartquake activity lately? Could this be something relating too?

Some eyewitnesses say that they were taking pictures in their boat and plowed a couple of hundred meter into this surreal floating stone field before they realized that they had to turn back. I don't know if that is scary or not.
