A quake-formed island in China

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

A footnote to the story of the quake-formed lake in China: after the May 12th landslide, the lake that dammed up behind it cut off a hillock and made it into an island.

See this picture from the LA Times.

The island will likely disappear shortly, as the lake is drained to prevent disaster.
