Island also emerged near Gwadar coast
The small island “Koh Zalzila” (Earthquake Mountain) was merged after the 2013 earthquake in the coastal area of Gwadar city of Balochistan, which gradually washed away in 2019.
According to a report by a foreign news agency, the US space agency NASA released images of the island from its appearance to its disappearance in the waves. The “Earthquake Mountain” was formed after the eruption of mud and swampy volcanoes under water. Due to the erosion caused by the strong waves of the sea, the island has now completely disappeared.
Despite the release of toxic and flammable gases from the cracks of the island, the island remained a tourist attraction and a source of attraction for locals. The island was 295 feet high and 135 feet long but is now completely submerged. NASA captured the images with the help of Earth Observatory One and Landsat 8 satellites.
