TOKYO (AP) — A volcanic eruption has raised an island in the seas to the far south of Tokyo, the Japanese coast guard and earthquake experts said.
Advisories from the coast guard and the Japan Meteorological Agency said the islet is about 200 meters (660 feet) in diameter. It is just off the coast of Hiroshima, a small, uninhabited island in the Ogasawara chain, which is also known as the Bonin Islands.
Yea, pretty awesome. Hope it continues to grow.
The largest volcano on earth – and possibly the second largest in the entire solar system - has been discovered off the coast of Japan.
With a footprint of roughly 120,000 square miles the “immense volcano” is roughly the same size as the British Isles.
Blimey-I really hope its not Tamu Massif starting to go off...thats the biggest known super volcano on the planet,as big as the UK!!
Anyone going to think that maybe this is a natural occurrence and not the beginning of the end?
