Volcano eruptions create new island near Japan

Volcanic eruptions spewing out ash and lava particles blasting out of the ocean said that a new volcanic island about 620 miles south of Tokyo in the Pacific Ocean has been formed.

The Bonin Islands have a new member in it called the Black cone. These islands are a series of tropical and subtropical islands made by volcanic ejections that incorporates Iwo Jima.

A few direct quakes around 4.5 on the richter scale marked the eruptions on Nov. 18. On the 20th of Nov there was steam and boiling water visible over the ocean seaward of Nishino-shima, which is a little island that denotes the summit of a huge underwater spring of gushing lava, as per the Japanese Coast Guard, which checked the ejection via air.

The island is still little and the volcanic hole is in the ballpark of
500 feet in measurement and the island itself is just 650 feet wide and 980 feet long, the Coast Guard gave an account of its site on 21st Nov. The ash crest shot out 2,000 feet into the air visible to the eye.
