Gawadar new island got the name ” Zalzala Koh ” – Exclusive Images

GWADAR  – The new island created by earthquake some 1.5 kilometers at the Jhanda coastline in Gwadar has been named as Zalzala Koh.

The island is 60-70 feet above sea level and its land mass stretches 100-120 metres by 250-300 metres.

To the south, on the beach near Gwadar port, crowds of bewildered residents gathered to witness the rare phenomenon of an island that the quake thrust up out of the sea.

Experts from the National Institute of Oceanography are evaluating the island and say that it is spewing methane gas which can be seen at various points and there is a visible presence of marine life on the island.

It has a rough surface, much of which is muddy and some parts are mostly made up of fine- to coarse-grained sand. One part of it is solid rock, and that is where Mr Baloch and his friends landed.
