Largest Underwater Eruption Ever Recorded Gives Birth to Massive New Volcano

Posted by in category: futurism

A huge seismic event that started in May of 2018 and was felt across the entire globe has officially given birth to a new underwater volcano.

Off the eastern coast of the island of Mayotte, a gigantic new feature rises 820 meters (2,690 feet) from the seafloor, a prominence that hadn’t been there prior to an earthquake that rocked the island in May 2018.

“This is the largest active submarine eruption ever documented,” the researchers wrote in their paper.
