New island rises in Pacific

(NTV) Japan’s Coast Guard has released the latest images of Nishinoshima, a new land mass forming in the Pacific 584 miles south of Tokyo.

Yellow material believed to contain sulfur can be seen around the caldera.

Experts who reviewed the footage say explosive eruptions seem to have decreased.

Lava can be seen flowing outward, but smoke and clouds prevented experts from measuring the area of the island.

Nishinoshima burst from the sea in 2013 and at last check was as big as 60 soccer stadiums.
