Volcano erupts to form new islet in Japan

Tokyo – A volcano eruption has formed a new islet about 1,000 km south of Tokyo in the Ogasawara chain.

The islet is about 200 meters in diameter and has a maximum elevation of about 20 meters above sea level.

This happened due to the result of an eruption about 500 meters southeast of uninhabited Nishinoshima in the Ogasawara Islands, the Japan Times reported.

The volcanic activity had first been observed at around 10:20 a.m. Wednesday.
