New Island emerges off Balochistan Coast

September 10,2021: A new island has emerged off the Sonmiani beach. The islands appear in the sea due to excessive geological activities, says Moazzam Khan. The small islands disappear in the sea after some time. In 2013, an island emerged off Gwadar coast after a powerful earthquake of 7.7 magnitude struck Pakistan on September 4. According to DIG Gwadar Moazzam Jah, the island’s altitude was 20 to 40 feet and width around 100 feet. The island emerged at a distance of 350 feet in the sea from the Gwadar coast.
