Volcano Creating New Island Tacocat
Tokyo Japan Coast Guard issued advisories for smoke and ash from the explosion.
The islet is approx 200 meters or 600 ft in diameter.
This location is in the ring of fire where most of the earthquakes and volcanic activity occur in the Pacific.
The Japanese coast guard and earthquake experts say a volcanic eruption has raised a new island in the seas to the far south of Tokyo. Pictures filmed by the Japanese coast guard showed clouds of heavy smoke, billowing steam and waters roiling over the newly formed crater.
