Quake In Central Pakistan Makes New Island : NPR

… SIEGEL: Now there are also very intriguing reports that this quake created an island off the coast of Pakistan. How is that?

HARRIS: Well, I can’t vouch for the photo that’s making the rounds on the Internet, but it turns out this is possible. It turns out that buried in the sediment offshore from Pakistan, there’s a type of ice that’s made mostly of methane. And it turns out that during earthquakes, this methane can sometimes be released from its ice form and turn into a gas.

And when that happens, it can create a mud volcano, which can push its way though the surface of the ocean. These mud islands have actually formed in previous quakes in Pakistan, so it’s possible another one has emerged during this quake. But the islands are low-lying and they don’t last very long. They’re - it’s a big surprise though. …
