You may have missed this but there's a new violent and you -- -- was created an earthquake seven point seven magnitude off.
-- of Pakistan in here now to tell us about it.
Jerry Kaplan who is science and technical editor foxnews.com.
So explain how this thing.
It fascinating think of it's the it's the action of the earthquake itself deadly devastating earthquake but it had some strange consequences.
It created this offshore island.
No it's not you might think you might think.
Two plates colliding together -- foursome stuff upwards but it's not quite as simple as that.
It's actually sort of -- mud volcano is what scientists believe.
The earthquake -- the Syrians deep underground shift around depressurized.
And then forced together with what are.
He actually won plates sliding underneath another one shot a -- of stuff up in the air.
And it's just -- -- -- it's and it's warm and islands.
Terrible -- its ground it's you know -- -- this stuff -- while Hong which eventually trees will grow and all the hours of life may evolved and not just a little oil -- you think somebody gets straight on a desert island it's it's 600 feet wider so it's about sixty feet tall.
Big enough that you were going over there -- boats and sea and walking around on top of this thing yes and this is it right there's how everything happened.
That is amazing again the size of this is what it's.
Hundred feet high and -- since it's about 600 feet wide and and sixty feet tall you could see some people walking around and a couple of photographs.
And it's not gonna last as the thing I was all right not a very -- yet we need to keep refinance now I know when -- get stranded on.
They said the waters are gonna come and washed away in a matter of days or weeks really it's a temporary island on here for see something like that what are often that happens.
They -- it has happened before in -- it has happened here before Pakistan right but fairly frequently.
You know of course a beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
We're created by volcanic activity and those are huge and so -- in beautiful and launch which just shows you what can happen.
Over you know many many many centuries.
Exactly and this will be.
A matter of weeks -- and does not look left or pretty right now that is truly -- -- but yeah fascinating stuff right there.
Lot of pride Jeremy Kaplan thanks for share it with a science and technology editor.
People can go to the website right check it out there's your us -- -- a partner -- -- I checked out very knives.
