Scientists came to the conclusion that they’ve created moving large volumes of magma at a depth of 28 kilometers below the surface. Given the scale of the seismic activity, experts predict the largest underwater eruption. In support of this hypothesis, and indicates that the island falls at a rate of nine millimeters per month and moving East with a speed of 16 millimeters per month.

While scientists are unable to explain the emergence of high frequency pulses, followed by major seismic activity around Mayotte and the appearance of dead fish in an area where no Islands of volcanic origin.

Before, scientists announced an increase in the size of the waves. Also the Correspondent wrote that the scientists found the island with the missing part of the continent.
