Earthquake creates new Mediterranean island – complete with tacky gift shops!

Cruise ships wasted no time in visiting the newly-created island in the Mediterranean.

Cruise ships wasted no time in visiting the newly-created island in the Mediterranean.

A powerful 7.7 earthquake shook the Mediterranean Sea just off Turkey, shifting buildings and rattling windows as far away as Pakistan. The undersea quake was so powerful, it sent up millions of tons of rock above the surface to create a completely new island within just a few minutes. Scientists who visited the new land mass reported that it was a fully-formed Mediterranean island, complete with trees, scenic cliffs, a deep bay with natural docks, and even an area of gift shops filled with merchandise like fake luxury watches. “Now we know how these things develop,” said one scientist. “We used to think these islands developed over thousands of years, but apparently they pop up in an instant.” The unnamed island is only three days old, but already cruise lines are adding it to their itineraries.
