Update: The official death toll now sits at 328, with thousands still missing. New reports coming from the region state that the new "island" actually measures 250 to 300 feet (76-91 meters) in length, and about 60 to 70 feet (18-21 meters) above the water. Local residents are now going out to the island to see the mysterious new land mass for themselves and taking photographs. Scientists on the scene have confirmed that methane gas is being emitted from cracks and fissures in the newly-formed island and have forbidden any members of their crew to strike a match or start a fire for fear of igniting an explosion.
Today's deadly 7.8 earthquake in Pakistan has taken at least 328 lives with thousands still unaccounted for in in the impoverished area of the Baluchistan province. Thousands of buildings have collapsed, with many people still trapped in the ruins of buildings and homes, as rescuers try desperately to free survivors.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake had a magnitude of 7.8 with an epicenter about 230 kilometers southwest of Dalbandin in Pakistan's Baluchistan province, which borders Afghanistan and Iran.
Now, there are reports coming out of the region of a new land mass that has emerged off the coast of Pakistan following the powerful temblor. Pakistani TV Geo News, citing Pakistan's deputy inspector general, is reporting that a 100-foot-wide island arose out of the Arabian Sea about 350 feet off the coast of Gwadar immediately after the earthquake struck at 4:29 p.m. local time (11:29 GMT). Pakistani media is also broadcasting a photograph of this new island mass.
