A brand new island is emerging from the sea just south of the Canary Island of El Hierro as an underwater volcano bubbles to the surface.
Magma has been spewing more than 60 feet (20 meters) high as the sea boils with a smell of sulphur.
Now a mere 230 feet (70 meters) from the surface, islanders are already trying to come up with an appropriate name for the new island.
The sea around the volcano is heating up and, at times, has reached as high as 95F (35C).
As I’ve said before, “Gee, I wonder what could be heating the seas?”
